The Barnburgh Male voice Choir was formed in July 1982 by Michael Bullars and David Bramley. Following rehearsals in Barnburgh W.M.C. the Choir held a public “sing along” in the Manvers Arms in December of the same year, accompanied by Mrs.Elizabeth Cook.
The first public concert was held in Barnburgh Parochial Hall in February 1983.
Over the years the choir has taken part in numerous music festivals with a great deal of success. We have raised money for various charities including The Royal National institute for The Blind and The Scarborough Life Boat Institute.
Under the leadership of Musical Director Andris Ugulis, the choir sings for pleasure and has a wide and varied repertoire, including songs from the shows, past and present, such as Paint Your Wagon and Les Miserables, many popular songs from throughout the 20th Century such as American Trilogy and Bridge over Troubled Water, as well as a variety of more classical scores.
We perform concerts at various local, and some not-so-local, venues and are available for specific functions eg weddings, anniversaries etc by request. If you would like us to sing at your event, please use the contact form, or contact the Secretary, details below.
We occasionally join forces with other choirs, male or female, for special concerts. Details can be found under the Forthcoming Events section. The choir meets for rehearsals every THURSDAY evening at 7.30pm in the Church Hall adjacent to the gates into St Peter’s Church, Barnburgh.
NEW MEMBERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME Just turn up on the night - even if you're not sure about joining, you'll be made very welcome, and given plenty of opportunity to decide for yourself whether to join up! There's no audition or requirement to be able to read music, so if you enjoy singing why not give us a try!!?? For a photograph of the rehearsal venue, please visit Memory Lane.
