inChoir started one Tuesday evening in February 2009. It was Shrove Tuesday, and most of the people who turned up at the venue had come for pancakes at The Jubilee Community Centre in the room next door. But thirteen people came to the first inChoir session, and most of them are still coming every week.
The Musical Director for inChoir is Mark Heppell. Mark started inChoir in East Grinstead in February 2009. He is an experienced MD and has worked on many shows in East Grinstead, Crawley and Horsham. His credits include The King and I, The Wizard of Oz, Les Miserables, Jack the Ripper, Magic of the Musicals, Tommy, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Return to the Forbidden Planet, Jekyll & Hyde, and Rent among many others.
inChoir is open to anybody and everybody who wants to sing. They now have over 1,100 members across 14 adult choirs in 12 locations.
