Shepshed Singers

Next event: Saturday 22nd October 2016 at Emmanuel Church, Loughborough .  Details

From 1st September 2016 Shepshed Singers will be known as Charnwood Voices. It was felt a change was needed to reflect the wider geographical area represented by singers and regular performance venues. The change has been approved by the Charities Commission. Please keep a look out for the new name, facebook page and website address over the summer! To be make sure you don’t miss out on further news, updates and concert details, why not join our mailing list (see left)?

We are an auditioned SATB choir of some 45 voices based near Loughborough. Founded in 1977, the choir has gained a well-deserved reputation for performing neglected and unfamiliar music as well as better known and popular pieces, both sacred and secular.

We rehearse weekly throughout most of the year and aim to achieve a high standard in both performance and presentation. Most of our work is a capella although we do also perform larger works with an orchestra. Past performances have included Handel’s Joshua, Hovhaness’ Magnificat, Duruflé's Requiem, Michna’s St Wenceslas Mass, Britten’s St Nicolas, Karl Jenkins’ Requiem and Mendelssohn’s Elijah. Every two years we go on tour, either to continental Europe or in Britain; the most recent tour abroad was to Budapest in 2013 (see Tours). We had a successful tour to Cornwall in April 2015. As a choir we have competed in music festivals and, in addition to our own concerts, we are available for weddings, Christmas functions, and social or fund-raising events.

Our Musical Director is Nicholas Scott-Burt, who has conducted the Singers since September 2015.
