Singing with us

We welcome new members from all backgrounds to our choir, whatever your level of musical experience. Whether you’re a seasoned choral singer or just enjoy singing in the bath, we would be pleased to hear from you!
The choir’s Find Your Voice programme introduces men to the key skills and benefits of singing in a choir and takes place annually. It’s a good introduction if you are keen to try singing in a group for the first time.

What will be expected of me?

An ability to sing in tune, a commitment to attend regular rehearsals, learning and developing with us, and a love of a broad range of music are all important if you decide to apply to join us.

You do not need to be able to read music. Many of our members have not sung in a choir before and have been completely new to exploring their voice.

What support is provided?

Our induction and the expert guidance and support from our musical team and section leaders means that whatever your previous experience, we’ll have you singing in no time and on your way to reading music effectively. Once you’re singing with us we are sure you will be hooked and motivation won’t be a problem.

What our singers say

I joined the Leeds Male Voice Choir in 2023, after doing the Find Your Voice course. I have experience of mixed voice choirs, but have never sung in a male voice choir before. The choir’s repertoire is eclectic, so there’s something for everyone, and learning new songs or new arrangements of known songs keeps you on your toes. The rehearsals are great fun - Tim is, among other things, a walking, talking encyclopaedia of music, everyone is very supportive, and there are always laughs aplenty! I love performing at the concerts - the culmination of our musical endeavours - and the audiences are always very appreciative of the music we make for them. It’s more than merely a terrific choir, it’s a merry band of brothers, and I’m very glad and most thankful to be a member.
A chance conversation led me to the Thursday evening rehearsals. Joining the choir many years ago has presented opportunities to sing in some fantastic places from the Leeds Town Hall to The Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate in Belgium. It’s great to take time out of each busy week and challenge yourself to learn new songs. I feel lucky to have found the group – always supportive, surrounded by fun and laughter and the fantastic sound we make when singing.
I joined the choir early in 2022 after going through the Find Your Voice course. I’d sang with a small community choir previously, but this was a massive step up in terms of the standard of the other voices in the choir (meaning I really had to raise my game!), and quality of the pieces we’ve sung. I’ve already sung in several concerts and even been on tour with the choir. I’m a big fan of Tim and how he leads the choir and our rehearsals are now a regular highlight of my week.
I can't read music, the last time I sang in a choir I was 10, but I have always loved singing. I was put off singing in a men's choir - I thought it would be stuffy and ecclesiastical. Joining 40-50 budding singers at Find Your Voice was a game changer - amazingly I was invited to join Leeds Male Voice Choir. There are lots of fantastic guys in the choir but no egos, I look forward to the rehearsals where there is lots of encouragement. When we come together the sound is stunning and something to be proud of. I can't imagine life without the choir.
I joined Find Your Voice in 2017 as a complete novice to choral singing. The course was brilliant: I learned a great deal as well as making friends with the other attendees. I was overjoyed to be invited to join the choir and have enjoyed every moment since. I never imagined singing such a wide variety of music, ranging from medieval to modern and sometimes in other languages. It has been a fun experience that I hope will continue for many years to come.
I attended Find Your Voice in 2022. I had not sung in a choir since l was a lad. I saw the Find Your Voice invite, coming out of lockdown when l was quite fragile. I have now completed my first year singing with the choir - l have found a rather special and talented group of people who are very supportive. My self confidence is being restored. I have for the first time in my life stood on a stage performed and received applause!
