Stevenage Ladies Choir
Stevenage Ladies Choir was formed in 1960, originally made up of the wives of members of Stevenage Male Voice Choir who decided they'd like to have a go at singing themselves.
The choir has taken part in various competitions over the years, and one of our greatest achievements has been winning a Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Music Festival.
We have raised money for a host of local charities performing regularly alongside other Choirs from around the UK and Europe - allowing us to stretch ourselves by learning pieces in foreign languages (including Welsh, German and Italian!) while taking in some culture on tours to France, Germany and Holland.
Having celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2010 the choir has grown a lot since 1960 and now has over 60 members – some of whom are founding members! With our 60th anniversary approaching the choir continues to go from strength to strength and we can't wait to see what the next 50 years brings!
The choir has also had the great pleasure of singing with some notable groups including BLAKE and Tenors Unlimited at venues such as the Gordon Craig Theatre and the Alban Arena.
