‘We're a group of local people who enjoy music and who wanted to be part of an orchestra. Some of us are a little rusty from practice, some haven't been playing for very long and others are, well, pretty good! The point is to just join in, to try, and to make music, regardless of your musical expertise ... We choose music which covers the broadest possible spectrum to make sure that there's something to everyone's taste and musical ability. We've performed everything from Beethoven to The Beatles.’

We learn by practice, with music reading not required. Our motto is Friendship through Singing, but we produce lovely sounds too!‘

We perform various types of choral music from mediaeval to modern, often including major choral works. Letchworth Chorale prides itself on being a friendly choir and we are always delighted to welcome new members for all voices. We strive to achieve high standards of performance, but also to enjoy ourselves in the process ... Formal voice training is not required, and we do not hold auditions for membership, but you must be able to read music sufficiently to follow a score, and sing in tune.’

‘A community choir, open to anyone who would like to sing. No auditions; just come along to one of our rehearsals ... Our repertoire extends from jazzy show tunes to haunting sacred music. Rehearsals are fun and you don’t need to be able to read music. Singing in a choir is all about blending voices: You do not have to be soloist standard; just be able to breathe and sing! Singing is great for your health and wellbeing and the team spirit and camaraderie of our friendly group will have you hooked in no time!’

‘Formed in 1974 ... We aim to be accessible, friendly and informal, but we do take seriously our desire to perform to the best of our ability ... We perform four concerts per year, in November, December, around Easter and in the summer.’ Open Rehearsals are ‘your chance to “have a go” and it's the time most new people join the choir. They happen in Autumn, Spring and Summer. While we hope most people will come back, there's no pressure to do so. If you decide to leave the choir at any time, please return all borrowed music straight away ... There are no auditions to join the choir, but we do expect people to be able to sing the same notes as the person next to them!’
