The Forest of Dean Male Voice Choir was formed in 1984 with 18 choristers as an amalgamation between Whitecroft and Bream Male Voice Choirs. Membership is currently 25 under the leadership of Musical Director, Tracey Gwynne, and Pianist, Hayley Marangon.
The Choir is a member of the National Association of Choirs.
The Choir frequently performs at concerts in aid of charities. The members very willingly use their hobby, in the form of their love of music and singing, to help others in need. Recent beneficiaries have included the Royal British Legion, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Cancer Research and Forest Pulse. Other, maybe less well known, good causes have also benefited from the Choir’s performances.
As well as concerts, the Choir sings at weddings, Birthday Events and funerals.
The members of the Choir enjoy a strong friendship and camaraderie, particularly at their practice sessions, which take place twice a week.
