Cop a load of Herts Police Choir
A MIXED voice choir who sing anything from Beethoven to the Beatles are offering to sing at events this year to help raise funds for charities and worthy causes.
The Herts Constabulary Choir has helped raise thousands of pounds since they were formed in the mid 1980s and are hoping to continue that trend.
DC Jim Frost, director of music of the choir, said: “We are really keen to hear from anyone who would like us to sing at a charity event and help them raise money for a good cause.”
The choir, which currently has 35 members, began as a male voice choir and was the idea of former Assistant Chief Constable David Williams in the 80s. It later incorporated women and last year performed at around a dozen events including performing songs from the musicals.
Jim said: “Since the choir began, we have gone from strength to strength and last year we had more requests to sing at events than we could attend. We usually do about one event a month, which gives us enough time to rehearse, so I would encourage anyone thinking about asking us to do so as soon as possible.”
