Community Choir
Bluntisham, Cambridgeshire

Musical Director - Paula Downes

We are always happy to welcome new singers to join our choir. You need to be over 18 years of age and have an enthusiasm for singing. There are no auditions, just come along on one of our rehearsal evenings, join in and see what you think.

Rehearsals - Every Wednesday in term time - 7.30pm - Bluntisham Baptist Church Hall, High Street, Bluntisham PE28 3LD
Fees are paid termly and are the equivalent of £3.50 per week with the first two weeks for newcomers free.

We perform at least one concert per term and sometimes team up with other choirs and musical groups too. We also try and attend at least one choir festival or workshop each year which is great fun and a chance to get to know everyone better.

We asked our singers why they come to the choir and here is what they had to say:

"I go to choir because it lifts the spirit"
"Because in a busy life it is a time when I forget everything else and simply enjoy the music"
"To be part of a group effort and to make friends"
"It makes me happy and I've made so many new friends"
"I come to choir because I love singing; I've liked the idea of singing all my life but only got round to doing something about it when I reached 61 yrs of age! I couldn't read music and I didn't know what a "rest" was (because I don't play snooker...think about it!) but almost a year later I'm hooked and apparently I can sing! I keep coming to choir because I want to do lots more singing and I like the friendly & supportive atmosphere within the choir!"

"I sang in a Cambridge Church choir from the age of 9 to 16 and then continued in a singing group from Cambridge University Press,until this disbanded in the late 1970’s. Since that time, I had not been in choir until I joined The Meridian Singers in October 2014.
I am really enjoying the experience, the voice training is brilliant - I look forward to the weekly sessions"
"Nothing lifts my spirits more than singing with the Meridians"
