Further information:

Are you a man? Have you ever experienced the power of the male voice multiplied? Men are underrepresented in most UK choirs so since 2013 it has been choir leader Dominic Stichbury’s aim to get more men singing. He is founder and leader of London based Chaps Choir – which has come to represent a new page in male voice singing – and London’s only inclusive male community choir Bellow Fellows. Many men in his choirs report they’re surprised to be members, but very glad they took the plunge.

Dominic will teach a variety of songs – from the rousing to the beautiful – arranged especially for male voices and allowing participants to stretch beyond the baselines and dum dums they may be accustomed to. All parts will be taught by ear in an inclusive & welcoming way. He is particularly encouraging of those men whose last singing memory was in school uniform.
