PONITA was set up in 2005 by members of People of Note who wanted extra opportunities to enjoy singing together and spread the ethos of community choirs. People of Note leaders Nickomo and Rasullah are not involved directly in PONITA but support us by allowing us to use their arrangements.
All members of PON are automatically members of PONITA too, and so are always very welcome to join in events the committee organise. These include performances at cultural and singing festivals, and in support of other charitable trusts, locally, UK-wide, and overseas.
In the past year (2015-16) PONITA has sung at:
- Chorus Festival Weekend South Bank Centre, London
- Amnesty International Garden Party at Goldeney House
- Celebrating Age Festival
- Bristol Festival of Song – song raids
- We have also entertained residents at Druid Stoke residential home
Because we aim to enjoy ourselves singing in all sorts of places the best we can, and because events need to be planned and rehearsed for, we need plenty of people participating – whether experienced or just beginning. So to find out more come and talk to a committee member, use the contact page, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Rehearsals are fun, social and make all the difference. Rehearsal space is booked and paid for through a £5-10 charge. Tea, coffee, cakes etc at each rehearsal are £1.
