Open to both members and non-members.

      What participants will get out of this group

      All participants are given sheet music with lyrics and are taught by ear, so it is not a problem if you don’t read music. The group includes both men and women of differing ages and abilities. So if you want to come and enjoy singing in a welcoming community, then this choir is for you!

      Who can join

      Anyone can join this group. We are running drop-in sessions over the course as well as the full cycle. The next term starts on Friday 14th September 2018 at 6.00pm in the George Williams Room, here at YMCA Club.
