We will be choosing two new charities to support in 2020 and look forward to welcoming large audiences to help us with donations once again.

Thank you from Alveston Singers

About Alveston Singers

The Alveston Singers was founded in 1977 with the aim of having fun and raising money for charity each year. Two concerts are held in the spring, or early summer, and two during the Christmas period. We usually sing carols outside a shop or supermarket at this time.

Every penny that is donated goes to our chosen charities, and we don’t keep any of it for choir funds.

Alveston Singers

Neither do we charge nor sell tickets for our concerts, but we do ask a representative of our charities to come to the concerts to tell the audience a little about their work. The audience can then make a contribution if they so wish.

For details of our next concerts see the calendar, and for a list of our past concerts since 1984, click here.

At present we have just over 50 members who currently pay a subscription of £50 per year, and most of the music we sing is borrowed from libraries.

There are no auditions but singers who can read music are especially welcome. We enjoy singing a great variety of music from major classical works to lighter songs from musicals and folk songs.

We meet each Tuesday at 7.30pm in the Alveston Methodist Church and welcome new members (particularly tenors and basses!).

In January 2107, as Joachim Schwander was preparing to return to Switzerland to take up a new post, we were joined by a new conductor James Davies.
