Steeton MVC is a large choir but we have ambitions to be one of the biggest in the country. We believe there are many men out there who are missing out on a great experience.
We therefore offer an open invitation to all men who like to sing to visit us at our rehearsal room at Steeton Methodist Church on any Monday evening between 7.30 and 9.30.
If you are male, enjoy singing and good company, we would urge you to consider becoming a member of the choir. You do not have to be a Pavarotti (though tenors are definitely welcome!) , or even need to be able to read music. All that is needed is the ability to sing in tune, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn.
If you decide to give it a go (and you can do so without any initial commitment) you will receive a warm welcome, and also you will get plenty of support. Our conductor will supply you with all manner of CDs and/or computer files to learn from and you will be assigned a designated member of the choir to give advice and help when needed. Though some choir members do read music, many don’t, and that doesn’t matter as all pieces are learnt note by note. Rehearsals are held every Monday evening at 7.30 at Steeton Methodist Chapel Schoolroom and last for two hours.
We are pleased to report that the choir’s membership is currently in a healthy state, but in order for the situation to continue, we do need a constant supply of new members so it is in our interest to look after anyone interested in joining!
What you will gain from joining apart from new friends and new skills which you probably didn’t know you had, is actually quite hard to explain to someone who has never sung in a large choir. What we can say is that to be one of 60 odd voices singing, for example, one of the great Welsh hymns at full throttle is one of the great experiences not just in music but in life. Not for nothing do you keep hearing of the “hairs on the back of the neck” factor in Male Voice Choir circles.
If you feel you would like to come along, or if you would simply like to know more, have a chat with one of our recruitment team on 0333 990 0124, we can then send you full information on joining the choir. Alternatively, email us to let us know you are coming. Or simply just turn up – you will not be turned away!
