Broadoak Choir

A Community Choir, based in the Village Hall.

Broadoak choir has been up and running for about 14 years now. It's present membership is about 24, an equal spread of Sopranos, Altos, Tenors and Basses. Over the years we have developed a good local following, and brought music to the major festivals of Christmas and Easter, as well as the weddings, christenings and funerals of local folk. We do one or two concerts a year, and sing the odd service at Mapperton and Pilsdon.

Our range of music is fairly eclectic, and we hope to broaden our base a little more this year, adding some jazz settings to our folksong and anthem repertoire. Most of the choir are now good readers, but we encourage people who are not yet confident, but who have good voices, to come and learn alongside more experienced readers. We have three writers/arrangers within the choir who produce original work for us to sing.
