Newport (Salop) & District Male Voice Choir, based in Shropshire, was founded in 1943, so in 2013 we celebrated our 70th anniversary.
The choir has a proud tradition of singing with really good musical standards – in the past we have won many competitions, and have been ‘English National Champions’ on two occasions. These days we do not take part in competitions.
We have sung in many differing and varied locations in the UK and abroad, including tours in Malta, USA, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovenia.
Over the years music has been specially written for us – Armstrong Gibbs was so impressed by our performance in a competition that he was adjudicating that he promptly wrote a piece specially for the choir! Additionally, over the years a number of new pieces and arrangements have been specially commissioned.
Newport (Salop) & District Male Voice Choir is one of the leading Male Voice Choirs in the Midlands. We sing a wide repertoire, have an active concert programme, and above all we have a friendly and purposeful spirit. We take our singing very seriously, but make sure that it is also great fun!
We practice at 7.30pm every Monday at Trinity Church, Wellington Road,Newport. Choir practices last for approximately two hours.
Come along and hear us!
Better still, come and join us!
