This promises to be an evening of singing to stir the soul and warm the heart. "Well, what a resounding success! The guy sitting next to me didn't believe it was a scratch choir." Audience member, March 2017. “I enjoyed every minute of our rehearsals and the performance. I wouldn't have missed it for anything. It is hard to explain to people how one person can get an eclectic mix of people singing beautiful music in next to no time!” Singing Safari member. Chris Rowbury has 30 years’ experience as a patient, charismatic teacher. He has a relaxed style laced with plenty of humour. Chris founded local community choir The OK Chorale in 2011.
