A LOCAL musicals and light opera society is on the look-out for a new conductor.

Wigan Voices in Harmony – formerly Wigan Gilbert and Sullivan Society – would also be keen for new singers (particularly male) to join.

It performs a wide range of music and also raises money for charity. Chairman Ken Rees said: “Once again we were able to give our annual Christmas concert where we helped raise £135 for the Mayor’s Charity. If any organisations are interested in booking us, just give us a call!”

Ken is taking rehearsals after the departure of the previous musical director but the search is on for a permanent replacement. Would-be new members and prospective conductors should ring him on 01277 400852 or come to a rehearsal at Wigan Baptist Church, Scarisbrook Street, on Wednesdays from 7.45pm to 9.30pm.
