Tetbury Community Choir is a very friendly and informal mixed choir for all ages and vocal abilities. The choir was formed in 2011, and since then our membership has increased and we now have over fifty members Tetbury. We welcome on average forty five members to our weekly rehearsals, ameeting on Mondays at Christchurch Tetbury between 7pm – 9pm.
Our choir is a non-auditioned choir, has an open door policy and welcomes anyone with a desire to enjoy singing in a no-pressure environment with an emphasis on the joy of singing. A maximum number of choir members is not set at present.
Our present Musical Director is Nicola Atwell who as Director of Music at Westonbirt School is well qualified to continue to develop the choir in continuing the high standards it has achieved. She is a very enthusiastic leader and rehearsals with her are always enjoyable and fun.
If you would like to join (all voices welcome), hear us sing, book us to help raise money for a charity or local event (we do not charge!), please email or call so we can arrange for you to attend a rehearsal, or discuss arrangements. If joining, you do not need to read music, just enjoy singing. If you are interested, please contact us, details are on the contacts page of our website: tetburycommunitychoir.co.uk
