Frome Voices is a community-based choir, open to all singers, with or without choral experience. We believe that singing together is a powerful way of celebrating and deepening our relationships with each other and with our wider community.
We normally rehearse and sing from early January until March, presenting one big concert each year, usually at the Cheese and Grain in Frome.
Our aim is for our singers to enjoy the challenge of learning and performing inspirational music to a high standard, whilst having some fun and making new friends along the way.
History and Ethos
Frome Voices was formed in 2012, when we sang Handel’s Messiah. Since then we have gone from strength to strength. We have a core of regular singers but we also welcome new singers every year – there is no audition – and for some concerts the choir has numbered up to 120 voices.
We usually perform our main concerts at the Cheese and Grain in Frome but we sometimes organise events in other venues – and in January 2019 a group of us sang in the Carnegie Hall in New York! When our finances allow, we support the work of other local organisations and charities that promote music, particularly singing, in and around Frome.
The choir is a community association, with a small, voluntary organising team. We also call on choir members from time to time to help with tasks that need to be done when we are preparing for a concert. We welcome all offers of assistance!
