Welcome to Midland Voices
This exciting singing organisation for the Midlands was formed in 2009, and is directed by Barry Todd.
The organisation started with one choir rehearsing in the evenings at two venues, and this choir normally gives its concerts with the Midland Voice Orchestra at Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick. Smaller "Daytime" choirs that rehearse during the day have since been added in Whitnash, Leamington on Thursdays and in Balsall Common on Tuesdays.
So Midland Voices offers a choice of three choirs, and a number of concerts each year: the main choir with unique opportunities to sing with the Midand Voice Orchestra at Warwick Arts Centre, and other performances by the daytime choirs to raise funds for charity. The total raised for charities to 2016, is an amazing £60,000. New Singers are always welcome. There are no auditions for the chorus, and all singers have the opportunity to audition to perform solo parts, duets or ensemble pieces in each of the concerts.
Please will singers who wish to take part in the next Main choir show MIDLAND VOICE FAVOURITES in December please apply now
