Jersey People's Choir created as part of BBC initiative

A new group called the Jersey Peoples Choir is being set up in the island.

The first rehearsal is at the Town Church in St Helier on Thursday at 18:00 GMT and the choir is aimed at people inspired by the recent BBC TV programme about a group of military wives who formed a choir.

The Choir's first project is to sing a piece of music specially commissioned for Easter by the BBC.

It is part of the BBC People's Passion and the new choral work will be performed by choirs across the country at Easter 2012.

The choirmaster of the Town Church, Kenneth Francis, told BBC Radio Jersey's Chris Stone anyone could join the choir and he was really looking forward to it.
