about Musical Village

‘Musical Village’ is a family of community choirs based in Leicestershire. It has been set up with the intention to bring communities together, and to provide an enjoyable and affordable opportunity to take part in community singing.

The choirs are non-auditioned – everyone who enjoys group singing and who wants to share this with the community is welcome. No previous experience or the ability to read music is necessary.

All groups take part in local community events, and have the chance to participate in larger scale concerts involving all ‘Musical Village’ groups.

Musical Village members also have the opportunity to perform with well known singers at prestigious venues throughout the UK.
