French Exchange Weekend
We are eagerly anticipating the visit of our French sister choir. We'll be welcoming Canta Koume from the Loire Valley to Melton on Thursday 16 July for a long weekend of song and socialising.
We will be singing together in a free concert in Oakham at 7.30pm on Saturday 18th July at All Saint's Church. This is a special occasion celebrating Canta Koume's 20 years as a choir and their talented conductor, Gilles Constant, has composed a piece called Totto Iro in celebration. The audience will be treated to the UK premiere of that work, along with a lively programme of songs from around the world. Go along early to be sure of a good seat!
If you can't make Saturday, or you'd like to hear it all again, there is another chance to catch the concert at 4pm in the afternoon of Sunday 19 July at St Mary's Church, Wymeswold . Tickets for this concert are £8, under 16s free. For tickets, please phone 01664 568047 or 01509 880079.
We will also enjoy a joint workshop and trips to local attractions on Friday 17th with an evening featuring a hog roast and home made" entertainment at Braunston village hall.
Curry and Bollywood dancing are the entertainment on Sunday evening at Wymeswold village hall and our happy but weary French fellow singers will be leaving early on Monday morning.
We are a mixed a cappella World Music Choir based in Melton Mowbray, UK.
We are a Community Choir, a friendly and informal group who have fun singing a wide range of unaccompanied harmony songs from all over the world. We enjoy rhythms from Africa, stirring Eastern European harmonies, songs from the Southern Seas and the Americas, soulful gospel and blues to name but a few - as well as traditional folk and rock and pop from our own culture.
If you can speak then you can sing!
We are open to anyone who wants to join us— there are no auditions, and all parts are taught by ear, so you don’t have to read music or have any previous experience.
The proceeds of all our concerts go to charity.
We have performed concerts for a number of organisations, such as LOROS, Macmillan, Leics and Rutland Air Ambulance, to name a few.
