The new Bungay youth choir, Cantaria, is busy rehearsing for its debut concert in July.
Formed by Jason Collins, conductor of the Bungay Choral Society, the group meets at the Fisher Theatre every week for rehearsals where Mr Collins is manager.
Members were also excited to receive their new Cantaria tops which they will wear at concerts, and have been sponsored by Danhire Trailers.
Bungay town reeve Terry Reeve has made the choir the focus of his year’s appeal to raise the funding to get it established, and visited a rehearsal this week to see how it was going. He said he was impressed with what he heard.
Donations have been coming in to support the choir, and are still welcome.
