The Eastwood Collieries’ Male Voice Choir was formed in 1919 and we are proud to be able to continue in the long standing tradition that is Male Voice Choir singing. The Eastwood Collieries’ Male Voice Choir is well known for the quality of its sound, tone and singing as well as its technical ability with an enviable reputation gained through determination, dedication, hard work and attention to detail.
The choir’s repertoire is extremely varied and includes traditional male voice choir standards and old favourites, music from the shows, operas, and more well known popular pieces. The choir works very hard to keep its repertoire fresh and appealing to varied audiences.
Now one of only a handful of original colliery male voice choirs surviving in the country, this choir continues to buck the trend in male voice choirs and attracts new members on a regular basis. Having a broad range of members the choir is able to boast a membership covering many age groups, young to old. With healthy membership numbers and an appealing repertoire we as a choir are well placed to continue providing musical entertainment to audiences nationwide.
The choir performs numerous concerts throughout the year for many groups, charities and organisations and is no stranger to high profile events; the choir has organised and performed in four concerts at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham, having established the popular Sounds Sensational format in 2008, which brought together a massed male voice choir and star guests.
As well as making music at a wide variety of venues, the choir helps local and national organisations raise much needed funds. We are immensely proud of this and will continue to perform in aid of as many charities as possible throughout the year.
