Originally from Huddersfield, Jan Ellis sang in a fabulous mixed voice choir. Since moving to Oswestry several years ago, she has tried several very good mixed choirs but none sang the kind of music she liked. Therefore after a lot of procrastination Os Rocks was born. Currently Jan plays piano for choir, chooses and sources the music.
She is currently assisted by Elen Davis and Lisa Lombardi who conduct.
Lisa has been a member of the soprano section of the choir since it’s formation and has been a member of several choirs including Cantamus Girls Choir.
From an initial meeting at the Bailey Head pub in March 2017, where Jan thought no-one would turn up, we now have over 50 members.
We are a mixed voice group who sing (or are going to sing) songs by Queen, Toto, Radiohead, Nirvana and other rock/pop songs. We are aiming to sing songs you would not normally associate with a choir!
We meet on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 – 9.00 at Memoral Hall, Oswestry (next Argos). We would particularly like more men to join – as we have plenty of very good female singers and our men are just a little bit outnumbered at present.
We are a very friendly bunch of all ages and we have a lot of fun socially as well as at rehearsal. All we ask is that potential members can sing in tune, you don’t need to be able to read music.
