Rainbow Voices is a combined group of individuals who are united by their love of song. Established in 1995, we are the leading Midlands based community choir for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans people and their friends. We are a diverse and mixed voice choir who provide a safe environment for old and new friends to meet and sing together.
We have approximately 40 singing members at any time and are split into 4 different voices: Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass. We are a non-audition community choir, and reading music is not deemed essential for members to join. This does not mean that we do not work to a high standard.
We sing a wide variety of music covering songs from the rock, pop, classical, folk and musical theatre genres. We perform most music without scores, having learnt pieces by heart.
During lockdown we should have celebrated our 25th Anniversary with a celebratory concert, sadly that has been postponed as we moved online to meet and practice, which was fun presented many challenges in maintaining our spirit in song, whilst not being able to hear each other.
As we were allowed to start meeting and singing together, the choir seized the opportunity, and with the support of the Midlands Arts Center, utilised their outdoor amphitheater, in the sun, rain and with the vocal support of the local Canada Geese.
Luckily we have since been able to return to regular rehearsals and blew away the audience at our sold-out Step Back Into the Spotlight Concert in Sep 2022.
New members are always welcome; we rehearse on Tuesdays 7.45 to 9.45 at the Longbridge Village Theatre. If you want to know more complete the form below.
