COME AND SEE US AT:
Townend Methodist Church, Chapel-en-le-Frith (ACTS)

Many men think they can't sing, won't be as good as the others, don't like their voice, are afraid of trying something new, are reluctant to attempt a new skill in front of others or think they need to understand music. We embrace all those fears and doubts and we are offering to train you.
Everyone was once a beginner, you don't need any musical knowledge or experience, you won't be asked to sing solo. It is quite alright to be a bad singer (you won't be) before you learn to become a good singer, never be frightened or feel you are not good enough.
If you sing in the car or shower you are on the right track, so come along and give it a go.
"Proud of our past,
Looking to the future"
The name can be off-putting can't it? For many people, 'Male Voice Choir' evokes images of men in blazers standing on a windy hillside singing Men of Harlech. Chapel Male Voice Choir is not like that. Not only is our music diverse - spanning everything from Faure to Les Miserables - but the diversity of our members' ages and interests means that CMVC has something for everyone.
If you are male, enjoy singing and good comapny, we would urge you to consider becoming a member of the choir. Just bring enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. If you decide to give it a go (you can do so without any initial commitment) you will receive a warm welcome, and plenty of support. Our choir will supply you with CD's or MP3's to learn from and you will be assigned a designated member of the choir to give advice and help when needed. Though some choir members do read music, many don't and that doesn't matter at all as pieces are learnt note by note. Rehearsals are held every Monday evening at Dove Holes Methodist Chapel and last for two hours.
As extra encouragement here is a poem from Ray Clark of our baritone section as to why you might want to join in the fun.
Now you have retired
Has work for you come to an end?
Or maybe you're without a friend/
You're bored, and then the only scene,
Is gazing at the telly screen.
Then I've an answer! The very thing!
Join with us aand have a sing.
You'll find people just like you,
Who've found fresh things that they could do.
Monday night we meet at seven thirty on the dot,
Some can read music (but not a lot!)
But we all enjoy the singing and the fun
It seems to affect everyone.
So make a decision, Join today!
Once you've joined you'll never stray!
You'll find enjoyment wihout measure,
Giving other people pleasure.
