For the best of Male Voice singing in North Staffordshire
Come and join us
Singing in a choir is a very rewarding hobby which gives great satisfaction both in rehearsal and performance. We carry out between 10-15 concerts per year and rehearse on a Monday evening from 7:15 - 9:15, (see our contact page for details of the venue.) We have had a surge in membership over the last few months so have had to institute a waiting list for membership. Any new members sit with established members of the choir and after around 3 months are asked to show that they can hold a line before being invited to join permanently.

Our recent ‘mini tour’ of the North West, taking in concerts at Ambleside, Dumfries and Newton Stewart was a great success, and we had the great pleasure at the latter two concerts of sharing the stage with Robyn Stapleton, winner of the BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musician of the Year in 2014.
Robyn’s beautiful music provided a lovely contrast to our own programme, particularly in the lovely acoustics of Crichton memorial church at Dumfries.
Next year’s concert programme is taking shape with some very exciting outings planned and more in the pipeline. We are also aiming ahead to 2019 , hoping to take part in the Cornwall International Choral festival for that year, so keep an eye on the forthcoming engagements area for details.
Congratulations are due to Sam O’Rourke, son of Tony from our Baritone section who has just finished performing in ‘Half a Sixpence’ in the West End as ‘Buggins’ and also understudying the lead role of Kipps on many occasions. Tony’s daughter Charlotte is also touring in Mama Mia; Tony himself performed on the West end, appearing with Suzi Quattro in Annie get your Gun - a very talented family.
