A message from Judith Land BEM FRSA
Artistic Founder Director of Music of Alcester Male Voice Choir
Hello from Alcester, Warwickshire and welcome to our website.
As the Founder – Director of Music it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. As we walk in our charming small town of Alcester which is 13km from Stratford -upon- Avon, Warwickshire and 13km south of Redditch, close to the Worcestershire border, we are struck by its liveliness in a town that offers something for everyone – history, culture, shopping, accommodation, food and drink – all mixed in with a good measure of flowers, festivals and fun!
Alcester Male Voice Choir is proud of its roots, has been proud to be part of its culture for 46 years and are very appreciative of the support we receive from the people of the town and surrounding areas. Our Annual Concert on March 20th 2021 at 7.00pm will take place in Pershore Abbey. Poster

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 BEM our founder and Director of Music BEM has an abundance of tales to tell, and is often invited to share her music experiences with a variety of groups of people.

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.
