Inverclyde Voices

Annual Spring Concert 1st April 2014 Inverclyde Voices began on 12th September 2005 with around 60 people coming to the first rehearsal. This quickly grew to over 100 in the weeks that followed. The choir was founded by Palma Allan. The aim of Inverclyde Voices is to offer the opportunity to sing to people from all walks of life. It has grown and developed tremendously over the last nine years. They now have almost 140 members who come together every Monday evening to sing and meet at several other points in the year to socialise! They perform regularly, bringing their uplifting repertoire to audiences and raising thousands of pounds for charities such as Mary’s Meals and Cancer Research. They have recorded a joint CD “Voices from Inverclyde” as well as their own CD, “Songs from the Heart”. Inverclyde Voices is proud to have Welsh singer and broadcaster Aled Jones as its Patron. Aled has been a great supporter of the choral development programme in Inverclyde over the years. To find out more visit www.inverclyde-voices.org.uk

Inverclyde Voices are hosting their annual Spring Concert in the Beacon Arts Centre on Tuesday 1st April at 7.30pm. It promises to be an enjoyable evening of inspiring music to lift your spirits and get your toes tapping. With 100 voices raised in song from “This Little Light of Mine” to “Tears in Heaven”, the audience will experience the strong sense of friendship and community in the choir, one of the many benefits of singing. Special guests are one of Scotland’s most interesting and entrepreneurial bands, the acclaimed Celtic folk rock band Reely Jiggered who will take folk music to new heights in an interesting and unique fusion of funk, rock, pop and jazz.
