If you would like to book us for a charity event, a celebration or “a bit of a do,” please contact our Concert Secretary, Phil on 01623 822070 He would be delighted to hear from you. We also have a website with lots of details regarding the choir. www.thedukeriessingers.com
We enjoy welcoming new members and particularly would like to recruit more men to sing with us. Just bring yourself along to any rehearsal and see if you enjoy it. Bring yourself, bring your friend, bring TWO friends, bring a GROUP! There are no auditions and no necessity to be able to read music. Our Musical Director Ashley Williams, who was a Bandmaster with the Royal Marines, is a very musically knowledgeable young and gets the best from the choir both in rehearsal and performance. Our choir men are an essential section of the choir, providing wonderful harmonies and a solid lower voice on which the others sit.
Our men are well appreciated but would welcome some more pals to swell their numbers.
