Community Choirs For Everyone
Formed in January 2018, My Town Choir welcomes everyone and there are no auditions. We love to encourage everyone to sing. The power of singing brings people together, builds a sense of community, it's fun and good for you too!
We aim to help your community in two ways. Firstly, giving you the opportunity to meet new people, socialise and benefit from the pleasure that singing in a choir brings. Secondly, helping the wider community by raising funds for local charities with our concerts. The charities are all local and chosen by the choir members themselves.
Where and when do you rehearse
How much does it cost?
Your first session is free and if you enjoy it as much as we know you will you can then pay for sessions as follows.
I've never sung in a choir before, do I need to audition?
No, My Town Choir is, and will always be non-auditioning. We believe that everyone can sing, so much so that we called our first choir by that name!
Will I have to sing in concerts?
Only if you want to. We would love everyone to sing in our concerts as the feeling of a great performance can't be beaten but we do understand that some people prefer just to sing in our weekly sessions. This is no problem at all, we want you to be happy at My Town Choir.
What type of music will I be singing?
We don't stick to one type of genre but enjoy exploring lots of different repertoire including musicals, gospel, classical, folk, pop & blues and world music. All sorts of stuff!
Do I need to be able to read music?
No, you don't have to read music, you will find that you actually start to learn during choir sessions though! We do use printed music but also learn by ear as well. All our repertoire is taught by ear and we also record parts for people to sing along with.

Sing For Joy!
Here is a performance of He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother made during lockdown, June/July 2020. We raised £2000 for our local branch of Parkinson's UK.
