The choir is made up of over 70 male voices of all backgrounds, singing in 4-part harmony performing everything from classical to opera, folk, jazz and sea shanties, hymns and a great selection of pop, depending on the audience / event.

Ian told Gedling Eye that the choir are currently rehearsing brand new music and have been lucky to receive a steady influx of new members since the new year; three of which are in their early twenties.

Ian said: “The choir is also travelling twice this year; the first time in May to Northampton and Bournemouth for concerts with their respective Male Voice Choirs  and then again to Swansea in October to perform with Dunvant Male Voice Choir and also to Mountain Ash in the Rhondda Valleys to sing with Aber Cynon Male Voice Choir.

“So it is a very exciting time indeed to join us at any age – just come along to our rehearsal room at Netherfield Baptist Church on a Wednesday evening at 7:30pm to be made very welcome and enjoy the spoils of being part of a busy and active larger male voice choir.

“The choir is well run and everything possible is done to make sure that the choir gets the very best from their singing and the social aspect of being a male voice choir, joining our choir is a great experience and just a brilliant thing to be part of. Make sure your get along to a performance.”
