A Choir member writes...

Although you may never make it onto a stage at Glastonbury you can still experience the pleasure of performing live by joining a choir. Wrestle with the intricacies of some of the great pieces of classical choral music, build up your skill week by week until you take to the stage with the other members of the chorus to sing in the amazing venue of Chester Cathedral.
Singing makes you feel great, it’s good for the brain, heart and soul, and afterwards a drink at the pub tastes all the sweeter.
We expect you to be able to sing a hymn or a song in tune. You don’t necessarily need to be able to read music, although this helps. You will never be singing on your own! If you don’t know if you are a Bass or a Tenor, or an Alto or a Soprano, we will be able to guide you."
