'If you enjoy listening to classical music in the company of others, you are warmly invited to pay us a visit.'

 

'Committed to working in partnership with schools and pupils to assist them in all forms of music making. It also enriches the lives of pupils and the community through the provision of a wide range of music making opportunities.'

 

‘The friendliest choir in Solihull ... We formed in 1952 when a group of singers met on a Sunday evening to sing together for their own enjoyment and for the enjoyment of others ... We are passionate about singing and have a repertoire which is ever-changing to meet members’ and audience’s tastes. Don’t let our longevity fool you: we sing equal quantities of current popular music, together with a few old favourites.’

‘Established in 1980, we are a mixed choir of about 40 people from Hampton-in-Arden, Knowle, Solihull and surrounding areas ... Our rehearsal programme includes “training evenings” led by our vocal coach ... We usually perform two concerts a year, plus our traditional Christmas Concert. We like to make one of our concerts an orchestral one when we work with professional soloists.’

 

‘The Harmonie wind band prides itself in providing the opportunity for players to rehearse and perform concerts.  We have no age restrictions or entry requirements - everyone is welcome to come and enjoy playing in a friendly atmosphere (including learners, returners and rusties).  Membership is free for those in full time education ... We perform several major concerts each year with special guest artists.  The band also commissions works and engages top professionals to conduct workshops to improve playing skills.  The type of music we play ranges from popular classics and show medleys to challenging new compositions.​ Proceeds from the concerts are channelled to local and national charities.‘

 

‘Our year runs from September to July, with short breaks for Christmas and Easter. We have an open door policy to new members, young and not so young, who are always welcome - there are no auditions. All we ask for is a love of singing and choral music, enthusiasm and commitment to our rehearsals and performances. Our musical director ... sets high and stretching musical standards, but also very much believes in keeping the fun in music making. Absolutely anybody has the opportunity to come along to give us a trial.’

KMS is an established, successful amateur theatre group, presenting one main production a year ... We are always looking for new members to join our wonderful group. It's not all about treading the boards, but there is a lot of background work which is essential to a good show, such as stage crew, wardrobe, front of house, props to name but a few.’ Held Mid March.

 

'Established in 1919, the Shirley Band is a traditional British brass band based in the town of Shirley in the Borough of Solihull in the West Midlands. Every year we have a full programme of concerts in Solihull, Birmingham and throughout the West Midlands, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the surrounding region, supporting local community events and activities ... The band is an active contesting band ...'

 

‘With a regular membership of around 60, this lively, well-established Choir gives at least 3 concerts a year, with a varied repertoire, in and around Solihull. They perform regularly at Shirley Methodist Church. New members are always made very welcome at their weekly rehearsals, held on Tuesdays in St Peter's School. The Choir is keen to encourage new music and young singers by commissioning, establishing links with junior choirs and offering free membership and music to young singers under its scholarship scheme.’

 

 

‘Here at Solihull Choral Society we draw our singers from the West Midlands, South Birmingham, Worcestershire, Warwickshire and further afield and we’d love you to join us as a vocalist, audience member or supporter. Our audience members love our concerts, and many rarely miss a performance. We love choral music and want to share it with you.’

 

'A welcoming and friendly group that enjoys taking on the challenge of a lively and varied repertoire. Our members span an age range from under 18 to over 80. The orchestra began life as an evening class in Solihull, moving to its independent status in 1990 ... Since 2004, Solihull Syphony Orchestra has organised an annual Rising Stars programme each spring. The programme allows a small number of talented young local musicians the opportunity to perform a movement from a concerto, an aria, a song cycle or something similar with a full orchestra - usually for the first time. The performance is not a competition - it is an informal family affair and always attracts a large audience of family, friends and regular concert goers. It is open to all musicians of school age living or studying in or very near Solihull.'

 

‘Based in Wythall, Worcestershire and is made up of members from across the community.  We are a very friendly bunch. We are not a church choir and sing all types of material. The choir now has over 80 members with ages ranging from 18 to over 80 ... with an average of 60 people attending rehearsals each week ... We welcome new members - no audition necessary.’
