Great experiences, new venues, new friends

Being a member of Bournemouth Male Voice Choir is full of powerful experiences and lots of positive emotions. Yesterday we met at central Bournemouth and took a coach off into the depths of Dorset to give a Concert at Tyneham Church.  It was an amazing evening – the church absolutely stuffed to capacity the choir uber-vibrant and full of good music.

Concert in Tyneham Village

The members of Bournemouth Male Voice Choir will have the great privilege of giving a concert in Tyneham Church this Friday evening.

“Gentlemen songsters off on a spree”

Last evening we had the privilege of being the guests of Northampton Male Voice Choir at their launch concert for their Northampton Men Allowed group.  This project is aimed “to unleash the hidden talent of Northampton Men” by forming a choir to perform after six weeks rehearsal.  many of the men had never sung before so to see the results of their efforts was a really good experience for us. A million thanks to the men of the Northampton choirs and their partners for the very warm welcome we received and for the phenomenal hospitality – we may need to order some...
