Further information:

The Wednesdays was the original Cheltenham Singing Group and began in February 2014 with only 8 members.  The group has now grown, mainly by word of mouth, to over 40 members – a perfect number for a community choir!

Song genres include contemporary, folk, world, spiritual, a cappella, rock, gospel, jazz……. and many more!

Although we arrange performances, it’s all about the singing and our singing community so if all you want to do is come along to weekly sessions, it’s your choice!

We hold an annual concert for friends, family and the community which over the last 4 years has raised money for The Mayoral Charities, the Church roof fund and Mindsong.  Other performances have included Christmas singing locally, ‘The Mayor’s Civic Dinner’ at Manor in the Lake, The Mayor’s Christmas Concert at Cheltenham College, The Community Choirs Festival in Stratford, The Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts and performing on the main stage at ‘Party at the Castle’ – Sudeley Castle. Some of these performances combine both choirs for a truly big sound!
