Welcome to Midland Voices
This exciting singing organisation for the Midlands was formed in 2009, and is directed by Barry Todd.
The organisation started with one choir rehearsing in the evenings at two venues, and this choir normally gives its concerts with an Orchestra at Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick. Smaller "Daytime" choirs that rehearse in the daytime have since been added in Whitnash, Leamington on Thursdays and in Balsall Common on Tuesdays.
So Midland Voices offers a choice of three choirs, and a number of concerts each year: including the main choir with unique opportunities to sing with the Midand Voice Orchestra at Warwick Arts Centre, and other performances by the daytime choirs to raise funds for charity. The total raised for charities to 2016, is an amazing £60,000.
New Singers are always welcome, there are no auditions for the chorus, and all singers have the opportunity to audition to perform solo parts, duets or ensemble pieces in the shows.
Daytime choirs - rehearsal start time changes - 10:30 on Thursdays at Leamington and 13:00 on Tuesdays at Balsall.
In prepration for a concert on October 1st which includes Midland Voices Daytime choirs the rehearsals will start 15 minutes early, ending at normal times.
Application Forms are Available
Application forms are available from this website here for all three choirs for Rehearsal sessions starting in September 2016.
Daytime Vocal Workshops
Daytime Vocal Workshops with Val Whitlock are planned on October 11th and 13th at both daytime choir venues
