We are a local community choir in Reading, UK. The choir was founded in February 2012 and was originally conducted by Nicole Johnson. Kat Starling took over as Musical Director in 2013, at which point ‘Voices of Reading’ became an acapella choir. Kat enjoys arranging our songs and leading rehearsals, as well as directing the choir as we perform in local events four or five times a year.
We sing because we love to, and we are a friendly group who like to have fun together as we sing. Our rehearsals are informal, and we enjoy our vocal warm-ups, which include tongue twisters, simple songs, and singing in rounds. Songs are arranged in three parts for Soprano, Alto and Low voices. Our repertoire includes a range of different styles including gospel, pop, songs from movies and even songs in different languages.
If you are interested in coming along please get in touch via the “contact us” page and we will let you know if and when spaces might be available. The choir is open to everyone who enjoys singing, and you are welcome to bring school-aged children along. There are no auditions, no prior experience is needed and you don’t need to be able to read music as we learn our songs by ear. Joining the choir is completely free!
