The choir was formed in 1964 and celebrated its 50th anniversary with a concert with Basingstoke Ladies Choir in November 2014. The choir, in its early days, toured to America, Canada, Holland and Malta as well as to Basingstokes’s twin towns of Alencon in France and Euskirchen in Germany and, at its peak, numbered 98 choristers
The choir today is much more modest but has a varied repertoire including a refreshing variety of songs for all tastes, including Male Voice Choir classics such as Llanfair and Gwahoddiad and choir favourites Speed Your Journey and You Raise Me Up. More recently we have tended to focus on more modern pieces and show tunes such as Bridge over Troubled Water, You’ll Never Walk Alone and Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.
