WHO ARE WE?

Whilst the choir has high standards and great pride in the quality of the sound it makes it welcomes new members regardless of their musical experience.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY
I was really apprehensive when I went for my first try-out session as I hadn’t sung in a choir since high school and I am now… well let’s just say it’s been a few decades. And I also don’t really read music. I shouldn’t have been nervous. I was made to feel very welcome. Robert makes the process of learning the songs as easy as possible, and there are lots of laughs. The sound we produce as a group makes my heart sing. Joining the choir is one of the best things I’ve done in years.
