Sing and Socialise

If you enjoy music, joining a choir is a great way to indulge your passion, make new friends and enjoy some health benefits along the way.  Singing is great for both body and mind and being part of choir can be a very uplifting experience.

There are a number of choirs in our area suiting all musical tastes and you can contact us to find out about any near you.

Age UK Gloucestershire partner four choirs across the county, based in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud and Cirencester each meeting weekly. All are run by experienced volunteer choir leaders and are open to anyone over the age of 50. There are no auditions and no musical experience is required.  You just need to enjoy singing!

Performances

Choirs have the opportunity to perform a few times a year in their local area.  Venues include retirement/care homes, sheltered accommodation, clubs and day centres.

Most years there's an opportunity for at least one choir to sing at our Christmas concert in the magnificent Gloucester Cathedral, a major event in the Age UK Gloucestershire calendar.

Fees

There is a weekly attendance fee which is decided by each individual choir
