Brinsley Community Choir started in May 2012 and was initially a get together with friends and a quick trip the pub afterwards. News soon spread of the new singing group and members grew from twelve to eighty members.
The core of the choir is community. We are committed to make our singing mark in the area we live. We do this by singing at local events, raising money for local charities and welcoming new faces and building friendships during our rehearsals.
Our achievements include regional coverage for the release of 'Angels' charity single, raising money for local charities at our annual concerts and winning the choir class at Selston Music Festival 2019.
The choir now has two additional locations in Ilkeston and Nuthall. Across the three choirs there are over 150 members.
Charlotte is currently working online with her choir members. They meet each Tuesday at 7:30pm via Zoom. Sessions are payable in blocks of six and payment is made via the booking services on the website. The sessions are interactive and members have commented on having a great sense of achievement, as we aim to complete one song each week.
If you aren't able to make a rehearsal, that's OK. Charlotte will keep you up to date with the harmonies and notices each week.
New members are always welcome! You do not need any prior experience to join.
