Community Choir

West Hill Park Community Choir was formed in January 2012 by Wendy and Nick Blunn. Wendy Blunn is our Director of Music at West Hill Park. She has a wide experience as a choral leader and singer. Nick Blunn is our Assistant in Music. He is an ABRSM examiner and spends the rest of his time teaching piano here at West Hill Park.

The Community Choir is open to all ex-pupils, parents, staff, villagers and friends of the school. Choir practice takes place at 7.30pm on Thursday night during term time.

Following some fun vocal warm-ups, songs, rounds and exercises performed from memory, the choir is usually working on songs for concerts and events which build up in the diary.

Events the Choir attended have included:          

  • Fareham Festival  
  • Performance at Jazz Night
  • The Boat Project – singing at Gunwharf Quays and Portsmouth Cathedral
  • Performance at the Summer Concert                 
  • Participation in Remembrance Service
  • Christmas Carol Singing and Concert  
  • Performance of Godspell at Titchfield and Fareham
  • Southampton Festival
  • Wedding Ceremony at Titchfield Church              
  • Participation in Alverstoke Christmas Tree Festival
  • Choir Tour to Belgium

There are around a hundred members of the choir. There are no auditions and you do not have to able to read music to join. We are a very friendly bunch and we all enjoy singing and socializing together.

'The combined voices of the 52 members of West Hill Park Community Choir singing at Holy Trinity this afternoon made an impressive sound, which our acoustics totally relished! Choir director, Wendy Blunn, said they just liked to enjoy themselves and this was certainly evident in their performance today of a delightful programme of music; they seemed very much to enjoy Wendy's conducting too and responded to it with great sensitivity. The audience loved it and wish them well in their plans to get to BBC Choir of the Year 2018! Thank you from everyone who attended today, to the members of the Choir, soloists, Charlotte, Jessica and 'the baritone', to Nick for his splendid accompaniment and Wendy for her inspiring leadership - not forgetting the very helpful lady in the front row, who looked after the mic for Wendy. Hope to see them again in future HTC concert programmes.'
