Welcome to the Worcester Male Voice Choir Website
Statement from our Chairman…….
The various Covid-19 lockdowns have had a severe impact upon the Choir.
For the majority of 2020 and the start of 2021 we have been unable to rehearse together in the traditional way or to perform to live audiences, with only online engagement being possible.
The biggest casualty of this has been the loss of any performance income, the majority of which we use to support our chosen charities.
However, as a result of the combined rollout of the various vaccines and isolation and distancing measures we have experienced and diligently followed there does seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel with the prospect of a slow lifting of the restrictions.
It is appropriate at this stage to share the Committees aspirations for the latter part of this year and the start of 2022, when we hope once again to return to our popular programme of concerts, and raise some of the essential funds required by the local charities we support.
The Committee is working hard to develop the programme of concerts set out below.
I must stress that it is provisional at this stage, so please watch out for the updates which will be regularly posted on this website.
The choir is most grateful for the community support given to our concerts in previous years and we look forward to welcoming supporters, old and new, to our future events as conditions permit.
UPDATE As of Monday 19th July 2021 the choir has resumed operations and is actively recruiting new members. The British Heart Foundation states that singing is good for your heart , and it’s also a great way to relax and socialise – you will be warmly welcomed by the members of our 60+ strong choir.
