Century-old city choir is on the lookout for fresh faces

Queen's Island Victoria Choir, formed in Harland & Wolff in the heyday of the shipyard, is 100 years old and still in good voice, says tenor Cecil Yates.

But conductor Alistair McQuaid is appealing for new members. "We have 45 at the moment, but we need to add fresh voices," he says.

The choir rehearses every Friday in the hall of the John White Memorial Hall in Tennent Street, off the Crumlin Road in Belfast.

If you're interested, details are available from the Queen's Island secretary, John White, tel: 028 9064 2447.

Come along and make your voice heard, adds Cecil Yates.
