‘It all started in 1957 when the old Herefordshire Constabulary celebrated its centenary and a dozen officers made up a choir to sing at an anniversary event in Hereford Cathedral. They enjoyed it so much they kept on singing and eventually opened their ranks to men from all walks of life. Today the choir is 65 strong and welcomes new members to ensure the great tradition of male voice choral singing continues.’

'Founded in September 1958 as an advanced strings evening class. It quickly became established as an independent orchestra, and today it is the only regular adult orchestra in Herefordshire ... Although initially founded as a string group, it quickly developed a pattern of concerts including wind, brass and percussion players and sometimes choral groups.'
