‘A four-part mixed choir. We give three main concerts a year in and around Kettering, drawing on mainstream choral works for our autumn and spring programmes but employing a lighter approach in the summer ... If you would like to join Camerata Singers, you are welcome to come to several rehearsals to see if this is the choir for you ... We don’t hold auditions, but most of us read music at least a little.’

The choir consists of approximately 23 ladies, ages ranging from 20-60+. Some have musical backgrounds, some who don’t read music, some who had never sung in a choir until they joined The Songbirds. If you fall into any of those categories you are more than welcome. Our repertoire really is very extensive, ranging from Sacred to Pop, Musicals to Gospel.'

‘Formed when the Regent Players, who did Gilbert and Sullivan Operettas, folded in 1989 ...  It was decided that the new group should attempt a much wider repertoire than the Regent Players, singing music of many different styles and from many eras. Because of this it was decided that a suitable name for the new group would be Variations ... We perform in a variety of venues over the course of a year. Some of these performances are given to groups in Hospitals, Care or Nursing or Retirement homes, or for Church groups and societies. Other concerts will be public ones - usually charity concerts to raise money for local good causes.’

‘In January 1933, Mr. Fred Felton called the Northants Evening Telegraph to say: "We are going to form a band and we are going to aim high". Two years later the Munn and Felton Works Band were champions of Great Britain - and a brass band legend was born that has lived on ever since. Under the names of Munn and Felton Works Band, The GUS (Footwear) Band, Rigid Containers Group Band, Travelsphere Holidays Band and now the Virtuosi GUS Band, the sound of Kettering brass has rung throughout the world in concert halls, on television and radio and on records and CDs. On many occasions, the Midlanders have dented Northern pride (traditionally the home of brass banding), by winning no less than six national titles, the British Open Championships and being proclaimed World Champions.’
