VOX VOICES

If you think you can sing, if you think you can’t, if you love singing, if you’ve always wanted to be in a choir….come and join Vox Voices.

A relaxed, friendly and playful choir where you can simply sing your heart out , with no pressure to be brilliant. We sing songs from all over the world in lots of harmonies and learn everything by ear.

“I've learned to tap in to the nightingales on the branches of my heart, sing some of my true favourite folk songs and learn melodies and harmonies that I've never heard and never dreamed I could sing...”

“Vox Voices is a glorious start to the weekend. It's a real joy to be part of a sensitive, fun group, gathering under Tara's expert guidance to sing her beautiful arrangements of a such a thoughtful selection of songs. And it's made especially enjoyable by the fact (I think) that we sound really good!”
