Choir News – November 2019

Chippenham Male Voice Choir sing out for voices!

  • Are you one of the many people who sing in the shower or at work, or perhaps you are an inveterate whistler or hummer?
  • Do you like most forms of good music whether it be Bach, Beatles or Queen?
  • Would you enjoy mixing with a group of men who are as friendly as you could wish to meet?
If the answer is “yes” to any or all, then Chippenham Male Voice Choir is for you!! Do give us a try – Ring Phil Dyke on 01249 782692 or just turn up on a Monday night rehearsal at 7:30pm St Peter’s Church, Frogwell, Chippenham.
We are happy to say that a few new faces have given us a try at recent rehearsals, but we’re still looking to swell our numbers (particularly in the top tenor section).
Rehearsals are well under way for the season, and will continue for what is soon to be our 80th year. Under the watchful eye of Musical Director Howard Topper there’s some hard work, but always plenty of fun. Yes, it helps if you can read music but it’s certainly not essential.

The choir has a firm reputation in the locality for giving concerts to many appreciative audiences, supporting charities and other functions.
We have been involved in several visits to Chippenham’s Twin Town La Fleche in the Loire Valley, and plans are well advanced for travelling there again in May next year.

Our last Concert in 2019 was :-
– 7:30pm, Thursday 19th December – St Andrew’s Church, Chippenham – our Annual CHRISTMAS CRACKER CONCERT, where we were supported by The Bratton Silver Band and Mezzo Soprano Marie Elliott. As usual it was a popular event, and was attended by a large audience, who boosted our charity donation to Parkinson’s UK. We thank them warmly for this, and for the widespread positive feedback that was received!
We now look forward to entertaining audiences throughout 2020, our 80th Anniversary year! Watch this space, and check our Concert Diary page for more news!
