Formed in 1985 ‘at St James’s Church, Alveston in Warwickshire. Since then, the choir has grown in size and stature to become one of the area’s leading ensembles ... The St James’s Singers always use the full orchestral accompaniment in all works and, where appropriate, use the authentic instruments. The choir has members of all ages, and subscriptions are waived for those who are students or who are in full time education ... The Junior Saint James’s Singers gives young people the chance to be immersed in great choral works which would usually be inaccessible to choirs of a similar age range. It provides a positive, exciting and inspiring experience of choral singing, leading them to full membership of the Saint James’s Singers when they reach the appropriate age and ability’.

‘Has an ethos of making music for fun and although we have only recently formed every concert we have played has been a sell out. We have plans to perform regularly at venues all over the midlands and at festivals and some cities in the UK ... We don’t set out to be an overly serious symphony orchestra. We will play anything from some rock to light classics – from Bond themes to Blues. Some pieces from musicals perhaps – some folk maybe - a possible touch of Pachelbel and Bach. If you are only into pure heavy classical music then we are probably not for you!! We particularly want to tempt back to music those of you who used to play some time ago but have lost the reason to get back into it. If you want to regularly play to packed audiences and have a lot of fun - then come and join us!‘
