Barbour Room / External Venue

Pay what you decide ticketing

Voices of the River’s Edge (or VOTRE) is our Thursday night choir for ages 18-35, open to singers interested in all kinds of music. You don’t need to be able to read music to be part of the choir – just enjoy taking part and be able to attend the rehearsals.

VOTRE is here for people keen to try choir singing for the first time, as well as anyone with experience of singing in groups. Rehearsals will be fun, social and challenging. You will develop your confidence, expertise, and you’ll learn to sing in a choir with the guidance of a brilliant Choir Director. And of course you could find some amazing performance opportunities!

Each term of VOTRE lasts 11 weeks; fees are paid in advance, with flexible prices to choose based on your current situation:

£25 – I am on low or irregular income at the moment, and this is what I can pay for classes given my other outgoings.
£50 – I have access to a regular and disposable income, and can afford to pay up front for 11 weeks of the choir.
£75 – I have the means to contribute towards making sure this choir is affordable for others.
