This website

This website is for members and prospective members of Voicemale, a men's choir in Norfolk, England. The choir is led by Stephanie Anderson, whose website has a page dedicated to Voicemale.

Our songs

We sing three- or four-part harmony in a rich variety of styles including African, gospel and songs from places like Georgia and Corsica, as well as ones from nearer to home. Here are three we performed in June 2017:

Ar Lan Y Mor, a love song from Wales

Bentatik Natorr, another love song, from the Basque country, sung here with another of Stephanie's choirs, Trinity Broads Singers, supplying a "drone" in the background

Come Along My Friend, a gospel song, sung here with Trinity Broads Singers and the audience

Links to songs from previous years can be found on the History page.

Our performances

We generally perform two or three times a year. We have contributed to Christmas entertainments and sung at private events as well as joining Stephanie's other choirs for combined concerts.

Our rehearsals

We rehearse from September to June inclusive from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. usually on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month and the fifth when applicable. Dates for 2017-18 are:

Sept. 9th, 23rd and 30th; Oct. 14th and 28th; Nov. 11th and 25th; Dec. 9th and 16th; Jan. 13th and 27th; Feb. 10th and 24th; Mar. 10th and 24th; Apr. 7th, 21st and 28th; May 12th and 26th; June 9th and 23rd

Our venue is the Salvation Army Hall in Aylsham (NR11 6DU). The building can be entered either via a path beside Aylsham Ex-Servicemen's and Social Club in Hungate Street or through a door on Mill Road close to the junction with Hungate Street marked "Salvation Army".

Free taster session, Sept. 9th 2017!

We start the 2017-18 season on Sept. 9th with a taster session that's free to anyone who might like to join us, so if that's you we would be delighted to see you! You don't need to be an experienced singer or able to read music, just a man who enjoys singing.

Costs

We divide the season into three terms and pay a term at a time in advance. The cost for a term usually works out at £7 per session, though this can vary depending on the number of singers in the choir.

Resources

Stephanie has created a useful site for us at Shutterfly with sound files for various song parts, a practice log and more. It is password-protected so only asccessible to members of the choir.
