NEW SINGERS WELCOME!
Corinium Community Choir sing a variety of styles including contemporary, folk, gospel, spirituals, traditional and seasonal songs from around the world and the UK. We sing in 3 – 4 part harmony and a rich and wonderful chorus of sound fills the Parish Centre each week. Sometimes we sing in the Parish Church across the road from the Parish Centre and bathe our senses in the amazing acoustics within the church.
No music reading skills are needed as songs are taught by ear, however words and sheet music are provided at times. Regular attendance is encouraged (especially leading up to a performance) in order for you to keep up with the repertoire of songs, build confidence and for you to get the most out the whole experience.
We organise at least two community based concerts per year with the occasional Big Sing further afield, such as Sing For Water West and other Big Sing Choir Conventions. Performing is not compulsory but for many it provides a welcome focus and outlet for all the hard work.
Back story: The Choir grew out of a singing course called ‘Wish I Could Sing’ which Sophie lead at the New Brewery Arts Centre in early half of 2011. The Choir was formed by Sophie in September 2011 and many of the same singers on the course still sing in the Choir. It was previously called Brewery Arts Community Choir, as it was based in the old New Brewery Arts theatre space. We moved to the Parish Centre in Spring 2015 and following this we decided to take a new name, Corinium Community Choir.

How To Join – If you interested in joining us or have any questions, please contact Sophie using the Contact form.
Sophie is a member of the NVN – Natural Voice Network – and believes in the principle that singing is for everyone – if you have a voice, you can sing. A ‘natural voice’ is the one you were born with – unique and ready to be sung.
“I believe that singing with others is good for the heart, body and soul and can leave you feeling uplifted and energised. Being part of a community choir is a hugely rewarding and fun social experience.” ♫ ♩ ♬ ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ ♪
