Ainsdale Village Singers are a small and friendly community choir based at Ainsdale Village Church on Station Road in Ainsdale. We enjoy singing a variety of songs including items from musicals, films, TV programmes and many other genres.
Our Musical Director, Stewart Hankinson has many years of experience conducting choirs and teaching singing and music to private students. Over the last couple of years he has gained a further degree (MMus. in Performance) from Liverpool University to his long list of qualifications. Stewart teaches students at the University of Liverpool and currently leads the University Chamber Choir. Stewart has been with us for six years now and during that time has conducted and devised four Choral Workshops which have all been well attended and have been inspirational and instructive. The last workshop was held in September 2022. All the vocal exercises and practice proved to be a very enjoyable day.
Over the past few years Ainsdale Village Singers have also arranged three concerts per year. Stewart instigated our Spring Concerts which have been held at Ainsdale Village Church. Stewart has performed at most of these concerts either singing or playing piano/organ duets with our accompanist, Brenda Redmond. We also hold a Summer Concert, normally in July when refreshments are served and most of the entertainment is provided by the choir. Our Christmas concerts have been very popular for a number of years and again are held in the church.
