A scoreline with a difference coming up at the home of Bath City Football Club as Twerton Park stands by to play host to a 90-minute singsong in July.
It’s being organised by Matt Finch – a prolific composer and arranger of music – well known in Bath and surrounds for his work with local choirs and Musical Director of Bath Light Operatic Group.
Since the start of Lockdown last year, Matt and his choirs have been online, and singing has been effectively banned.
Currently the rules state that no more than 6 people can sing inside, and only up to 30 people can sing in a group outside.
While football fans sing on the terraces, protesters sing on marches, singers and choir leaders have sat silently watching in despair as others sing.
So he’s hired Twerton Park Stadium on the 17th July, for 90 minutes, so that anyone who wants to come and sing in a big group, can come along and join team “Singing United”.
Matt has teamed up with some local and National Choir leaders to lead the socially distanced crowd in a big sing song for 90 minutes; a great big social distanSING!
I met him in Queen Square to talk about the upcoming event and also about an online live broadcast from Bath of virtual choir videos recorded by choirs all over England – including Bath – and elsewhere around the world.

Just to remind you Singing United is at Twerton Park on July 17th at 3pm.
CHOIRSHOW 6 will be online on YouTube at 7.30 pm on July 11th.
