The Dursley Male Voice Choir will be making a return visit to the Tetbury Goods Shed following a successful and enjoyable concert here in 2018. The choir’s wide repertoire will again be on display with music from shows, classical arrangements, some sacred pieces and much that has been specially arranged for this choir.
Both the Musical Director Barrie Cooper and his deputy and Principal Accompanist Matthew Sharp are first class pianists and they will be delighting the audience with solo and duet performances on the Goods Shed beautiful Steinway B piano.
Dursley Male Voice Choir was founded by a group of enthusiastic local singers in 1978 and has since grown to be one of the principal male voice choirs of the region, with up to 70 singers drawn from communities around Dursley and the wider Stroud district. This year it celebrates its 41st anniversary.
They perform around 12 concerts each year, the majority of them for charity. As well as local concerts the choir performs at many venues, around the UK and internationally.
The choir has been under the musical direction of Barrie Cooper since 2003. Barrie had his first piano lesson over 60 years ago at Marling School in Stroud. He is a Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music and over many years has been the accompanist and conductor of choirs as well as Musical Director of an amateur operatic society.
