Church choir

We are Tardebigge church’s own four-part choir – for soprano/treble, alto/contralto, tenor and bass voices.

We often sing at the 11am and 6pm services on a Sunday, and can provide a choir to sing at weddings and funerals.

Sometimes accompanied by the Tardebigge School Choir, we also sing carols at care homes in the local area as part of our Christmas celebrations.

We are always open to new members. If you simply enjoy singing or would like to learn to improve your singing voice, we would love to hear from you.

When and where we meet

Choir practice is every Saturday morning – from 10.00 to 11.00 – in St Bartholomew’s church

Joining the choir

Although some choir members go to church, or are current and former parents and children from Tardebigge First School, you don’t have be any of those to join us.

You don’t need to read music, either. If you are just starting out, you’ll be surprised at how much you pick up as you go along – and how quickly.

And of course, as choir master, I’m always here to answer your questions and explain anything you’re not sure about.

But you do need to have a sense of pitch (be able to sing reasonably well in tune). After that, we can work on improving the quality of your voice, if it’s needed.

What singing can do for you

Singing is a great way for you to improve your health – in mind and body – and develop your self-confidence whatever your age.

It can help to relieve stress and, because it promotes correct breathing, whether you’re a child or adult it can help with your fitness by developing your lung capacity.

It’s also a wonderful way to experience and learn about all kinds of music, modern and traditional, as part of a friendly and welcoming group.
