Welcome to Practice Night
We practice every Tuesday at 7.30 pm in the Church Rooms of Kingsley Park Methodist Church, Northampton, NN2 7HG.
You are most welcome to visit between 7.30 pm and 9.30 pm  to see us, to hear us and to discuss your interest in the Choir.

History
The Choir was formed in 1946 and was originally known as the “ Northampton Men’s Own Male Voice Choir”. The Choir’s name was changed in 1980 when we were granted the privilege of wearing the Northampton Coat of Arms badge in recognition of the Choir’s fund raising for local charities.

Enjoyment
We are a Choir of like-minded singers who enjoy the friendship of our fellow Choir members and who sing for pleasure and who strive at all times to give the best possible performance.
We enjoy extending our knowledge of music and choral singing thereby enhancing the quality of our performance.
We enjoy the thrill of singing to large audiences, frequently in the surroundings of magnificent buildings. On some occasions we sing with other choirs or in the company of massed choirs.

Charities and the Community
Our aims as a Choir are to perform in Concert, bring pleasure to our audience, and to raise funds in support of Charities and the Community.  From 2010 to 2013 we have raised over £30,000.
