The Village Singers are a community choir with members of all ages coming from the villages and towns around Chippenham. We have been making music together since 2011.

We are united by our love of music and our love of fun but also through many shared emotional experiences. As well as performing in local churches we have had the privilege of singing during the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing in Ypres, as well as in Ypres Cathedral. We have performed in Bruges and in Paris we sang Faure’s Requiem in Eglise de la Madeleine, where it was originally performed. Our last adventure involved flying to New York to be part of a larger choir performing in Carnegie Hall for Sir Karl Jenkins’ 75th birthday celebratory concert, something never to be forgotten!

The Village Singers are like an extended family. Our friendship and shared love of music is a tight bond, which became even more important through the pandemic.

We love to put on a show and our concerts really showcase the fire in our belly, often with wonderful surprises – we have even had a marriage proposal in one of our concerts – although I can’t promise that every time!
