Singing is our passion but so is raising money in aid of a variety of charities. Our current busy charity concert calendar can be found in the forthcoming concerts section.

“As a choir we enjoy an excellent relationship with the local press. That relationship has been built up over many years in supplying them with good quality meaningful stories rather than just issuing press releases for the sake of it in the hope that some of them will get taken up. Our choir has a rich and fascinating history, and Judith Land our founder and Director of Music has an abundance of interesting tales to tell. The following article was published in the summer edition of Alcester Town Council newsletter.”

Alcester Male Voice Choir – Singing is our passion
We thought we would take this opportunity to tell you a little about our choir, who we are and what we do.
Who are we?
The Choir was formed some 44 years ago by founder and current Director of Music Judith Land BEM,FRSA, and from those early beginnings the choir has grown to one of the largest and most respected choirs in England with some 80 members. We are an English choir but there is a strong Welsh influence as Judith was born in South Wales and this is often reflected in the some of the pieces the choir sings. Singing is our passion and we are often complimented on our varied repertoire and quality of singing
What do we do?
The choir works hard and rehearse every Wednesday evening at the Jubilee Centre in St Faiths Road with an optional rehearsal on Monday nights. We hold between 12 & 15 concerts a year in support of local charities, churches, groups and clubs of all kinds and over the years the choir has raised thousands of pounds for others. There is also a social side to the choir and many new and lasting friendships are made.
Where do we sing?
Apart from the local concerts the choir has sung at some of the most prestigious venues in the country including The Royal Albert Hall. Symphony & Town Halls Birmingham, St David’s Hall Cardiff, St Georges Chapel Windsor, and both Worcester and Ely Cathedrals. The choir has also toured Cornwall, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, Brittany and Belgium.
Like to join us?
Any gentleman who would like to join the choir would be made most welcome. There are no auditions, all we ask is that any new members commit to the weekly rehearsals and only when they and feel ready join in the regular concerts. We are a friendly choir and existing members help and encourage new members every step of the way. Whilst there is a dedicated recruitment evening in September new members are welcome at any time.
If you are interested in joining the choir or would like to discuss a concert for your organisation then call Judith on 07886 139781.
