Chesterfield Tuneless Choir

Chesterfield Tuneless Choir will burst into song on WEDNESDAY 31ST JANUARY 2017.

The choir will be based at the historic Elder Yard Unitarian Chapel, Elder Way, Chesterfield, S40 1UR but will welcome people of all religions and none, and sing a wide range of popular songs, everything from old crooners to Adele, via classics from the likes of Abba and Queen.

The choir will meet Wednesday evenings, weekly during Derbyshire school term times with breaks for half term holidays.  It will usually start at 7.45pm and go on until 9.15pm with a break for drinks and biscuits.

For the launch doors will open at 7.15pm with everyone offered a glass of wine while they register for the choir.   And there will be cake rather than biscuits as a treat at the break.  Please book a ticket for the launch so we know how many to cater for:

Tickets for the launch are £10, and that will be the charge for anyone’s first time at choir including registration and that first singing session.  After that it’s £7 if you “pay as you go” including refreshments, or you’ll be able to sign up for a term at the equivalent of £5 per session.

The choir is being set up by Amanda Higginbotham and led by Karen Cook.  Amanda loves singing but admits she doesn’t have a tuneful voice.  Her chorister mother told her she had “a voice like a foghorn” and her family and friends cringe and cover their ears when she exercises her vocal chords.  Karen Cook is a music teacher in schools and runs a couple of other singing groups.  Together they are looking forward to welcoming people to the choir and having fun. 

If you have any questions you can contact us on, or call Amanda on 07598 517077.  If you can’t make launch night you’ll be welcome to come along at a later date, but it’s a good idea to sign up below for email updates in case anything changes or a session is cancelled.  You can also follow us on Facebook.
