COVID19 UPDATE: Island Voices are meeting fortnightly online on Zoom, at 7.30pm on Tuesday evenings. Email for details.

Island Voices is a committee run community choir, which grew out of an Arts Council project developing and performing original poetry and songs inspired by the local area. This has led to the current culture within the choir of original songwriting both individually and collaboratively between choir members.

Island Voices are currently learning a set of original songs and chants for Heart of Stone, a community play project which is due to be performed on Portland in mid-September 2021.

Su Lewis currently runs fortnightly workshops. Other choir members who also lead the choir on a voluntary basis on alternate weeks have stopped leading since we migrated to Zoom. Here’s a link to a youtube video of a local history project we got involved with as part of the Cultural Olympics in 2012:
