'In the autumn of 1952, Len Hogg came to Bestwood as Colliery Manager and very soon afterwards the Choir was formed under the name of "Bestwood Colliery Male Voice Choir". However membership was never confined solely to workers at the colliery so that within the first year, the name was changed to the "Bestwood Male Voice Choir" which still continues today ... Over the years, the choir’s achievements have been considerable, having numerous successes at musical festivals and engagements with some of Britain’s finest choirs and regimental and brass bands, at the same time raising thousands of pounds for local and national charities.'

'We are a friendly group of people for whom music is important, but of equal importance are the friendship, good humour and team spirit engendered by the choir ... set up by a group of Burton Joyce residents who enjoyed singing. Today, over half of our 70+ members live outside of the village.We are always keen to attract new members. We don’t hold auditions, but the ability to sight read is an obvious advantage. There is no age limit and if you haven’t sung for some time don’t worry ...'

'The only barbershop chorus for women in Nottinghamshire was founded in 1992 by a group of teachers and students at Arnold Hill Comprehensive School ... Lace City Chorus now has over 90 members from all over the East Midlands. Women of all ages, backgrounds and of all musical abilities join us to sing, have fun and make lifelong friendships. Our members range in age from 23 to 79 years old. Our members are not professional musicians. Our members are from a variety of backgrounds and hold jobs such as sales manager, accountant, nurse, chemist, executive director, and teacher - as well as being wives, partners, mothers and aunties! These days the chorus is highly regarded as one of the premier barbershop choruses in Europe, having won the regional championships (UK, Ireland and the Netherlands) an unprecedented five times. These successes have led to the chorus competing at the Sweet Adelines International Convention (the "world championships" of Barbershop) ...'

‘A group formed in 2010 with the intention of making music for personal enjoyment, and to provide an opportunity for local groups and charities to hold fund raising events using music. The Ensemble ... is made up of two groups; a choir and an instrumental group ... Torkard Academy is an exciting new project which began in 2016 ... Thanks to the generosity of our local community and a grant from Nottinghamshire County Council, we are now extending the project to offer more young people access to music, including subsidised tuition and instrument hire. We aim to give young people who may not otherwise get the chance, the opportunity to learn to play an instrument and play alongside other musicians.’
