After two successful overseas trips to Cape Town and to Dublin already this year, nearly 150 inChoir singers from across Sussex were invited to New Broadcasting House to record Do-Re-Mi from the Sound of Music for BBC1’s The One Show.

The show, transmitted that evening, had Julie Andrews as a guest, and the song was a surprise tribute.

Spokeswoman Sally Lockhart said: “This followed us singing to Alex Jones at Gatwick Airport recently when she left London for her Sport Relief challenge in Utah.”

Sally added: “inChoir is a fun, modern singing group which meets weekly in Burgess Hill, Crawley, Crowborough, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and Uckfield in Sussex, as well as in Kent and Surrey.

“Anybody can join. There is no audition and no need to read music. You just need to enjoy singing.

“We sing songs from the past 60 or so years and from musical theatre, and we have a lot of fun. We perform regularly, in this country and abroad, run singing holidays and musical workshops and, in the five years since we started, have helped to raise around £16,000 for various charities.

“You can catch us at the Arundel Festival and on Brighton Bandstand in August and at many other events across the south east in the coming months.”
