Chesterfield Tuneless Choir

The choir was set up by Amanda Higginbotham in 2018. Amanda was told by her chorister mother that she had the “voice like a foghorn” and we are so grateful that she wanted to start a choir for those that may well have been told the same; told to mime, told to sing quietly. We will be forever grateful to her that she founded the family that is Chesterfield Tuneless Choir and delighted that she will share her “ foghorn” with us at our weekly sessions.

We are so pleased that Debbie Rayner took on the role as choir leader when Karen Cook retired in December 2020 but now the baton has been firmly handed over to Debbie who is now proud to be both the manager and leader of the Chesterfield Tuneless Choir.

She promises that their legacy will be safe in her hands.

Debbie has spent her professional life in music and music education. Her mission is to help enrich lives through music making. She loves the fact that Tuneless Choir has all the benefits of singing without the serious stuff!

We sing a wide range of popular songs of different genres, everything from Doris Day to George Ezra, via classics from the likes of Abba and Queen.

Now lockdown is easing, we are looking forward to in person singing sessions again in our NEW HOME!. Following on from our outdoor sessions during the summer, we have now  secured our permanent indoor home at the Chesterfield Football ground in their Sports Hall on the first floor of their Community Hub. We are so pleased to say that we start weekly sessions on Wednesday 8th September 2021 and we have our first charity sing booked for Christmas.

Please sign up for our emails in order to find out what we are doing and the opportunities for signing.

If you have any questions you can contact us on, or call Debbie on 07739717979.   You can also sign up for emails below, and/or follow our Facebook page where you’ll find photos and videos of what we get up to!

Bye for now and we hope to welcome you soon into our Tuneless family.
