Minpins

Now in their third year, The Minpins, Stroud Choral Society’s children’s choir, was created with the support of the Roald Dahl Literary Estate, and particularly Felicity Dahl, Roald’s widow. They are named after Roald’s final book, in which the Minpins are a ‘city of little people’.

Felicity, together with Brian Kay are Patrons of this talented and enthusiastic group who are directed by Zoë Hynes. Huw Williams (SCS and Bath Abbey Musical Director) is their President and advisor.

The Minpins go from strength to strength and in March 2017 took  on their biggest challenge yet, when they performed alongside the Stroud Choral Society in the world premiere of a specially commissioned work, The Pelicantata, a setting of Roald Dahl’s  book “The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me”.

The choir currently has 35 members, aged 8-13 years. The choir meets during term time on a Tuesday evening 5.45-7.15pm in Nailsworth. They make many public performances, both on their own and with the adult choir.

 

Youth Choir

In September2017, in order to acommodate children who had outgrownThe Minpins, we branched out and formed a new Youth Choir. Stroud Choral Youth Choir (SCYC) . Currently compromising of 11 talented 11-18 year olds, the choir would welcome any 'teens' with a passion for singing a variety of music, including classical,choral,spiritual and pop. Rehearsals are after The Minpins on a Tuesday, during term time from 7.30-8.30pm
