Maidenhead Community Choir
The Maidenhead Community Choir is a friendly and inclusive choir for all singers, old and young, experienced and novices and from all musical backgrounds. We meet on Tuesday nights at 7.15pm for an hour of music and fun. There are no auditions, no need to read music and the emphasis is on singing for the sheer joy of it.
The repertoire reaches from Gospel, Swing, Barbershop, Folk, and Musical Theatre to Pop and Rock. Although this is a light-hearted choral group there is also work on vocal technique, musicianship and performance skills. Gez Kahan, our professional pianist is proficiently accompanying the singers.
The choir is run largely in the aural tradition, so much is being learned by ear, actual sheet music will be provided for more complex pieces.
Norden Farm is the ideal venue for the choir where we rehearse in the beautiful 18 century Long Barn with the opportunity to mingle in the bar afterward and meet new people. It also provides the perfect setting for the concerts that we work towards.
In the past year we have shared concerts with the renowned London Adventist Chorale under Ken Burton and Reading Christ Church Choir under Mervyn Williams as well as performing at Cliveden.
