New members are encouraged to join regardless of their previous musical and singing experience, and we can offer some support e.g. in learning music reading and sight singing for those who would like it.

Choir is divided into four voice sections (soprano, alto, tenor and bass). Occasionally we have extra rehearsals at weekends. The year is divided into three terms starting in September.

New members' evenings are held in the first few weeks of term. Our next new members rehearsal is Tuesday 12 September 2017-where we will have a rehearsal and a "cake break for Macmillan'

We rehearse each Tuesday from 8.00 -10.00 p.m.

We are rehearsing in the mac in Cannon Hill Park.

Choir subs are currently £36 per term, or £18 a term unwaged. If anyone has a real problem with these costs speak to the membership secretary or co-ordinator and we will see what we can do – we do not want anyone not to be able to join purely on financial grounds.

For new members, there’s no need to pay anything for the first four weeks while you decide if you want to stay with us. However, once you agree to join us we like to be paid at the start of each term.

We are a performance choir, usually organising one or two major concerts per year ourselves and in addition we do guest performances throughout the year, e.g. Birmingham Pride, Arts Fest and World AIDS Day. We also guest with other LGB choirs elsewhere; such as, London’s Pink Singers, Leeds’ Gay Abandon and Edinburgh’s Loud and Proud. The need to learn new music and bring it up to performance standard means that we ask all members to attend a minimum of 80% of rehearsals.

If you think you would like to join, come along to a one of our new members' evenings. For more information ring Carolyn on 07828 647384 or Steve on 07813 025990 e-mail us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
