North City News: Brum's Pauline can sing after all; PERRY BARR.

A CIVIL servant from Perry Barr is set to trip the light fantastic after being picked to sing with a choir at the Symphony Hall.

Pauline Evans, aged 49, has signed up for Britain's largest independent singing company Sing Live and will be appearing at the Birmingham concert venue in July.

The company is open to anyone, with beginners given three months' professional vocal coaching, before singing as part of a huge choral company, with a live 35-piece orchestra at a top venue.

Pauline, who works for the Department of Works and Pensions, who used to travel to Warwick, said she was delighted a group had started in Moseley.

"I sang in a school choir but was told I couldn't really sing, but years later I saw a friend perform with Sing Live and I was bowled over.

"Because we are coached professionally as a large group, I now realise that there is safety in numbers and that I can really sing."

Pauline added: "I can't wait to sing at Symphony Hall."

Sing Live is looking for singers to join its Birmingham group, which meets on Wednesdays at St Columba's Church, Chantry Road, Moseley.
