Hull Male Voice Choir is recruiting members now.
It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or more experienced you will receive a warm welcome (and a cup of tea!). We believe anyone can make a contribution when they are in a group and you will soon get the hang of it.
In 2015 we sang, in conjunction with many other choirs, in front of 5000 people at the Albert Hall, raising £1000’s in aid of Cancer Research UK. We will be doing so again in 2018.
We also have a number of exciting concerts planned for the year ahead as part of City of Culture. As well as raising money for others singing benefits you as well. It. improves your physical and mental health so why not give it a go?
The choir sings a wide variety of music from different genres and times to suit all tastes. If you are interested fill in the form below and we will get back to you.
Get in touch
We meet at 7.30pm every Wednesday at the Octagon Centre, Walker St. HU32RA.
Alternatively you could ring our Secretary, Reuben Hird on 01482 656869 for further details.
I joined the choir in 2010, I always enjoyed music & singing but had not sung seriously since my school days. I googled local choirs & the rest is history.
I don’t consider myself a fantastic singer but singing in a choir enables you to explore your capabilities in a ‘safe’ environment, safety in numbers I think you would call it. Other choir members were very supportive particularly in the early days which was a great help.
I was fortunate to join the choir just before their centenary celebrations and the ‘100 years not out’ concert at the City Hall with Beverley & Driffield choirs, accompanied by the Brighouse & Rastrict Brass Band was a fantastic occasion that I will treasure for ever.
Another highlight was the Festival of Brass & Voices at the Albert Hall in 2015, to have sung there was a something I thought I would never achieve.
I also enjoy singing in our local venues and we have had some wonderful concerts. We rehearse once a week & rehearsals are a chance to socialise with like minded people, learn new songs & improve your singing.
Singing is definitely ‘good for you’ and I would recommend it!
When I ask people to join the choir they often say “I can’t sing’. I thought the same about myself. My dad used to tell me to shut up when I was a child.
Then one day I was walking down the corridor at work, singing out loud as I often do and someone said, “Hey you’ve got a good voice. You should be in a choir. Dave is a member of Hull Male Voice Choir Voice. Why don’t you ask him?”
Two weeks later I was at my first rehearsal and I remember thinking, “Am I part of this great sound?” I couldn’t believe it. The sense of well-being was overpowering and ten years later I’m still going strong!
You should join us. You won’t regret it!
As well as the choir I enjoy walking, golf, gardening and have had two books published.
