Who we are
We are Tardebigge church’s own four-part choir – a choir for soprano/treble, alto / contralto, tenor and bass voices. We’re the only four-part choir in the Redditch Holy Trinity team.
What we do
We sing at the 11am and 6pm services every 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 area as part of our Christmas celebrations.
When and where we meet
We meet for choir practice every Saturday morning, from 10.00am to 11.00am, in St Bartholomew’s church. Click here for directions to the church.
Who can join the choir
Although some of us are regular members of the church, you don’t have be a church member to join us. We are always open to new people who’d like to join the choir – including current and former parents and children from Tardebigge First School – or to anyone who just enjoys singing or would like to learn.
And you don’t need to read music. 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) although 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.
