Feedback from our most recent performance…
I would like to thank Koruso! from Southwark & St John’s Gospel Choir from Malmo, for their excellent joint evening of songs and music. I thought it was an excellent evening, and nothing can quite replace the presence of live musical performance. Thanks also to the Copleston Centre for organising the evening, and for the refreshments at the interval.
Feedback from previous performances…
“I was very impressed with Koruso’s performance – very well done!” – Andrea Brown, Director of Music, CAM for Drama, Morley College, and Koruso!’s previous Musical Director
“Thank you all so much for your performance today. You all added a
special dimension to the day” – Imogen Woods, Assistant Head teacher, St Peters CE Primary School, Liverpool Grove
Feedback from our last rehearsal ‘taster session’
“I thoroughly enjoyed it (taster session) and I found the group so lovely and friendly, warm and fun – just what I am looking for in a choir” – Naomi
What some of our members say…
“It’s a laugh and good fun during rehearsals as Andrew attempts to knock us all into vocal shape. Personally speaking, I find singing at Koruso most therapeutic, plus a great stress reliever” – Kay
“Nothing can be more enjoyable than a Thursday evening singing with Koruso. All my stresses, tensions just completely go. I love my Thursdays” – Victoria
“I thought I couldn’t sing before I started coming to Koruso, and now I sing all the time” – Alex
“Koruso allows me to express myself through singing with other singers, which is much more fun than singing while cleaning around the house!” – Anna
