MEN - We Need You - 24th April 2011

 One Voice Community Choir is going from strength to strength with nearly 80 members. We have recently recruited a number of new singers to the Alto and Soprano section, but are short of male tenors. We do not use sheet music but learn songs by heart, so you don't need to be able to read music. We are not looking for Michael Buble, although I don't think we'd turn him away. Just a passion for singing is required. If you are interested in joining us, please complete the Membership Enquiry Form in the 'Contact Us' section and we'll be in touch as soon as possible.
