People who love singing can join the Jets and the Sharks of Crawley Concordia Singers for a West Side Story workshop on Saturday, September 12.

You’ll learn extracts from some of the best loved numbers from the blockbuster musical and take part in an informal performance led by Crawley Concordia Singers’ musical director Ian Assersohn.

The workshop takes place at St Alban’s Church, Gossops Drive, Gossops Green, Crawley, and everyone is welcome.

Registration is at 1.30pm for a 2pm start.

The cost is just £15, including scores and refreshments, with under 18s at £5.

Family and friends are invited to the free performance at 4.40pm.

There will be a closing collection in aid of St. Catherine’s Hospice.

As well as some of the best loved numbers from West Side Story, the workshop also features extracts from Porgy and Bess.

Choir publicity officer Donna Oxley said: “West Side story has some fantastic musical numbers full of pace, rhythm and emotion. They’re great songs to sing and leave you bursting with energy. We’d love lots people to join us for this trip to New York City in the 1950s.

“If you love singing then There’s a Place for You at this workshop.

“To find out more call us on 07790 863 229 or just come along on the day.”
