About Us


My Town Choir Logo


Formed in January 2019, 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!

The choirs are run by Jo Edworthy a professional singer and choir leader. Check out her WEBSITE to find out about her. 

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.

  • 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. Sessions cost £8.00. We have a number of payment options for packages or pay as you go. Unlike many other choirs, you only pay for the sessions that you attend. If you would like to discuss any of this with us, please don't hesitate to contact us at or call 07895 461741
  • Is there an age limit?
    Currently the choir welcomes those who are 18 years old and over. There is no upper age limit though! If you are aged between 15 and 18 you are welcome to join with a parent or guardian. You MUST attend the sessions together. Please contact us for more information.
  • What are your sessions like?
    Our sessions are fun and uplifting but also we really work to improve the pieces that we are singing. You can find out more information about our sessions HERE
  • 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.
  • What makes My Town Choir different?
    We offer everyone the opportunity to experience the feeling that singing together brings, you don't need to audition. Experienced, professional choir leaders equipped to encourage and bring the joy of singing. We sing a wide range of repertoire including gospel, classical, folk, musical theatre, pop and world music. Each local choir is given the opportunity to sing a programme that suits its members rather than a set-list of songs that every other choir performs. We also aim to help the community by putting on concerts to raise money for local charities chosen by the members of each My Town Choir.
