We are a mixed a cappella World Music Choir based in Melton Mowbray, UK.
We are a Community Choir, a friendly and informal group who have fun singing a wide range of unaccompanied harmony songs from all over the world. We enjoy rhythms from Africa, stirring Eastern European harmonies, songs from the Southern Seas and the Americas, soulful gospel and blues to name but a few - as well as traditional folk and rock and pop from our own culture.
If you can speak then you can sing!
We are open to anyone who wants to join us— there are no auditions, and all parts are taught by ear, so you don’t have to read music or have any previous experience.
The proceeds of all our concerts go to charity.
We have performed concerts for a number of organisations, such as LOROS, Macmillan, Leics and Rutland Air Ambulance, to name a few.

It would be helpful if you could let Steve know if you are coming and how many will be in your party, so he can estimate catering requirements.
