Cornwall Community Choir is a network of daytime community based choirs in Cornwall. The choir started in summer of 2009 and currently has choirs up and running in Penzance, Truro, Helston and Falmouth and a St Ives/Hayle group based at Carbis Bay. The Truro group covers the Truro, Newquay and St Austell areas. There are plans for further choirs in other areas of the county in January 2017, the first one being in Liskeard on Friday afternoons starting on 6th January.
Do you sing in the bath? Whilst doing the hoovering? Wandering around the golf course? If you have always wanted to sing, but never plucked up enough courage to have a go, here is your opportunity! You don't have to be able to read music and you won't be asked to sing on your own or take an audition!
Unlike some choirs which learn everything by rote (and take a long time to do it!) we encourage singers to pick up basic music reading skills. We provide you with music/words and give little useful tips during rehearsals to enable you to learn a little about music reading and pick up a few basic music reading skills!
Each area choir has it's own director and a professional accompanist providing a real, live accompaniment! We don't use backtracks, CD's or other gimmicks!
Perhaps you are an experienced choral singer looking to have a bit of fun and let your hair down and introduce new people to the world of choral singing? - We need experienced singers to become involved and encourage those who may be new to choral singing. Weekly practices feature a range of music from simple rounds and canons to concert pieces - in fact, everything from Bach to Beatles!
This is an ideal opportunity to introduce non singers (or people who haven't done any singing for a while) to the joys of choral singing and once they've been bitten by the bug, encourage them to join already existing evening choirs!
Members of the various groups come together two or three times each year, usually in Truro Cathedral. Other recent venues have included Guildhall in St Ives and a charity open air concert at Gwennap Pit which raised £1,200 for Marie Curie Cancer Care. As a choir, we also support the work of Cornwall Hospice Care.
