Founded in 2007, North Yorkshire’s Malton District Male Voice Choir is one of the youngest, if not the youngest, male voice choir in the region. For all its short life to date and small size, it has gained formidable performing experience throughout Ryedale and, more widely, from Newcastle to Scunthorpe.
It has also earned praise for a repertoire ranging from Handel and the Welsh hymns to Disney. Under its current Musical Director Vivien Wilcock it has helped raise thousands of pounds for charities, attended coastal festivals, and has sung on TV and in stately homes.
The choir meets most Monday evenings in the Malton Baptist Church rooms in Malton (next to Yates’ store). Practices are informal, always fun and, in the opinion of many members 'a great way to start the week'. The choir is always keen to boost its size and welcomes new members of all ages. Previous choir experience is not necessary but a love of singing is obviously helpful. On top of which, doctors say singing is good for your health!
