Chelmsford Male Voice Choir & Rock Choir
CHELMSFORD MALE VOICE CHOIR
The origins of Chelmsford Male Voice Choir (CMVC) can be traced back to the Boer War when the choir first sang to raise funds for British troops. The choir currently has over 60 members who are proud to wear the crest of the City of Chelmsford.
In 2015 the Choir became a registered charity, the aims of which are to promote, improve, develop and maintain public education in the appreciation of the art and science of choral music in all its aspects. These aims are achieved primarily by performing concerts, raising worthwhile funds for good causes.
Variety is the hallmark of our concert performances and our repertoire ranges widely, from choral works to arrangements of ‘pop’ classics and songs from the shows.
CHELMSFORD ROCK CHOIR
In Chelmsford Rock Choir, we have had a busy couple of terms since returning from eighteen months of singing together over Zoom during the pandemic. We are delighted to be performing again, and since the start of the year have raised over £12,000 singing in Chelmsford Cathedral for the homeless charity CHESS, in Boxford Church for World Vision’s DEC Ukrainian Appeal, and in the Mercury Theatre, Colchester. We are thrilled to be a part of the Chelmsford Fringe this year, alongside the Chelmsford Male Voice Choir, and will be bringing along our own versions of well-known chart songs from the 60s to today, including God Only Knows, Boogie Wonderland, Hallelujah and I Wanna Dance with Somebody.
The Chelmsford Rock Choir rehearses weekly in Beaulieu Community Centre on Thursdays at 12.30pm, and you can join them or find your nearest Rock Choir group by searching www.rockchoir.com
