Have you ever sung in a choir? Is it something you have considered but never got round to doing anything about it?  
Surveys now show that over 2 million  people sing regularly in over 40,000 choirs in the UK. Why not join them?

  Singing in a choir is something incredibly intimate, a sound that begins inside you,  then sharing with a roomful of people it develops into  something even more  exhilarating as a harmony.  

Tuesday Singers repertoire of music is varied and covers most tastes as you can see from the previous concert programmes listed  below. .

Joining Tuesday Singers is great way to learn a wide range of music under the expert guidance  of musical professionals with a wide range of experience, as you can read here.

New members do not have to read music, although it does help, you only need to love singing and having some fun.
You are welcome to join us for a few weeks while you decide if you enjoy our repertoire.   

As a light relief,  a variety of social events are organised during the year including coffee mornings and the occasional lunch get together meeting at either a member's house or a local hostelry.

WHY TUESDAY SINGERS? 
WHY WE SING
Tuesday Singers meet throughout the year with short breaks of two weeks in the Summer and at Christmas.  The annual membership fee is £200 per year payable in quarterly installments of £50, just slightly more than £4 per session.   This is used to fund the various costs including use of the hall for rehearsals, the conductor and accompanist and the provision of sheet music.

The members buy a uniform blouse that is worn for performances with either smart black trousers or a long black skirt.  Skirts are available for hire for a one-off charge.

Tuesday Singers do not receive any grants or funding from any source other than from the fee charged for performances and membership fees.  The various social events are funded by members' contribution.  The accounts of the choir are independently audited and can be viewed if requested.

The members elect a small committee each year to look after the administration of the choir. The current committee members are:-

Margaret English - Chairman & Bookings
Janet Martin - Secretary
Deborah Silver - Treasurer
Mollie Dunning - Librarian
Pat Crowle - Assistant conductor
Judith Inman
Maggie Fletcher
