Six "Find Your Voice" sessions ran in June-July 2013, and it was immediately decided to form a regular choir ... Since then the choir has grown in stature, alongside the growth of its rehearsal home, Bedlington Community Centre, which has become something of a music hub in its own right, and now hosts a regular series of music and theatre events, and a base for other regular groups including ukuleles and brass bands.'

'Some of us had been in a Bridlington Choir for nearly three years when, we learnt just after Christmas 2014 that our choir master was to move onto pastures new and that our choir in Bridlington would be closing. You can imagine how shocked we were after being together all this time and making lovely bonds and friendships within the choir. We quietly accepted for a few weeks that was the end of that.

'A true Community Choir, open to all ages and levels of ability. Founded in January 2015, The Wing Singers provides a wonderful opportunity to find your voice and learn a variety of classical and contemporary songs in a friendly and fun environment ... No singing experience required! ... There are no auditions and there is no need to be able to read music. The choir learns songs in unison as well as two, three and four part harmony. Teaching tracks are posted on the website for members to use to help with their singing practice at home. Regular workshops help develop members’ musicianship skills, vocal technique and confidence.'
'Mixed community choir based in Stamford. We sing unaccompanied harmony songs (A capella) from across the globe. Celebrating the richness and variety of the human voice, Woven Chords’ singing gives expression to songs from many different cultural traditions. We are a very friendly and informal choir, open to anyone over 16 years of age, men and women. We follow the ethos of the Natural Voice Network. We do not hold auditions and no previous experience or the need to read music is necessary as all songs are taught by ear. If you can speak - then you can sing! The emphasis is on enjoyment and creating a rich accurate sound ... Woven Chords is a special group of people with a large membership, many of whom have been there since the early days of the choir some 21 years ago. We welcome new members and there is a free two week trial period, with no commitment.'
