VINTAGE VOICES (aka SU3A Performance Choir) was founded by Carole Hurst and Robert Spooner in 2012 in response to an advert in SU3A Links.

We sing in friendship groups around the City including luncheon clubs, care homes, churches and cathedrals for anyone who invites us. Any donations we receive go to charity, for example Lost Chord (www.lost-chord.co.uk) Our repertoire is varied, from 16th century glees and rounds; light classical music such as Ave Verum and The Lord is my shepherd; to 20th century musicals and Wartime sing-alongs.

We normally meet every Monday morning at the Scouts HQ on Trippet Lane rehearsals starting at 10:15 (so that we can use our bus passes!) and finish at 12:15. We are a friendly mixed-voice choir who sing in 4-part harmony. All are welcome, especially Altos, Tenors and Bass but we have vacancies in all parts. There are no auditions, but some experience of choral singing is desirable, as is the ability to read music at some level. There is a fee of £20 per calendar month to cover rent and music expenses, payable by standing order or cheque, but you can attend 2 rehearsals free of charge before deciding to join us. If you would like to join us or book the choir for an event or a performance please contact Jackie Hall.
