Chute Village Choir


What is it?
A group of jolly people who enjoy singing together - see photographs below!

What do we do?
We meet on most Wednesday evenings for an hour and a half’s singing! We practice for Easter, Harvest, Christmas and weddings, or other special occasions. To help the vocal chords, we also enjoy a glass of wine, or maybe even two glasses!

What don’t we do?
We don’t audition!

Do you need to be able to read music?
Absolutely not! Many of the choir don’t read music and they sound just as brilliant as those who do.

Chute Village Choir is for everyone, whether a regular church goer or not; all you need is a sense of humour and to enjoy singing. We do not compare ourselves; some have stronger voices than others, together we make a good sound.

Do come and give us a try!

For more information, contact Chris Saunders on 01264 730284, Mark Geraghty on 01264 730440 or Audrey Cherrington on 01264 730260.
