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.
To become a member of any of the community choirs you can simply come along to a rehearsal. You don't need to audition, pay a membership fee or any upfront costs. It is £5.00 per week, pay as you go.
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.
