Welcome to the Loughborough Male Voice Choir.
Gentlemen, would you like to give choir singing a try?
Have you ever considered joining a male voice choir, or just learning how to sing in Harmony?
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to stand on a stage as part of a Male Voice Choir, and perform in a concert, and feel the genuine applause of an appreciative audience? Perhaps you’ve had these thoughts a thousand times, but dismissed the idea as “me, I can’t sing“? Well, the fact that you’ve searched for, and found, our page, and are reading this now, maybe means that you are in the same place that most of the existing choir members were before they joined us, just thinking and wondering ‘what if”. Everyone has to begin somewhere, even the most accomplished singers.
Joining a Male Voice Choir can appear to be such a difficult step to take. Surely it would require an ability to read music, and probably an audition to pass too? Perhaps for some choirs you do need all these things. To become involved with the Loughborough Male Voice Choir you need little more than enthusiasm, the ability to hold a tune, enthusiasm for music and singing, and a willingness to aspire to improve. Be assured that Choir members will help you along the way.
If you’ve ever considered singing and never quite taken the plunge, why not come along to a Choir rehearsal. You could join in, or maybe sit and listen. You may be pleasantly surprised, we are a friendly group of like minded men who do enjoy our singing.
Loughborough Male Voice Choir are always seeking to increase in their member numbers. So……….
If you are male (a vital requirement for a Male Voice Choir!) why not come to Trinity Methodist Church, Royland Rd, Loughborough, on any Thursday evening at around 7 pm (we start rehearsal at 7.15 pm and finish at 9.15 pm).
To get a flavour of what the Loughborough Male Voice Choir is all about take a look at our video, filmed in 2010 which features interviews with our musical director, chairman and other choir members.
If after a week or two you find it’s not for you, that’s fine but one thing’s for sure – you’ll never know until you try!
The Loughborough Male Voice Choir was formed in 1967 under the direction of George Towers and since that time has grown to become the Official Male Voice Choir of the Loughborough.
The Choir has a long and very successful history of singing and performing concerts since it’s formation and, although a relatively small choir, it annually performs concerts across the county of Leicestershire.
The Choir has a large and varied repertoire from traditional male choir pieces through to hymns, sacred music, show songs, classical, and also more up to date pieces by Lloyd-Weber and the Beatles.The Choir welcomes invitations to sing at concerts, social events, weddings and funerals.
The Choir has sung in many notable events including singing at the Midlands Music Festivals, and on three occasions has appeared at the Royal Albert Hall as part of a 1,000 strong English Male Voice Choir. During the last decade the Choir has performed in Germany and Belgium and in 1999 won the Jason Shield and the Leicester Recording Company Trophy at the Leicester Festival of Music.
