Our community choir journey started nearly 10 years ago , and over that time has gone from strength to strength with many highlights and lots of money raised for various charities along the way .We sing a fun and varied repertoire that ranges from the 1920’s to the present day. Our performances take us to village halls, residential homes, Regional Theatres and Stately Homes. In 2016, All Round Voices were chosen by award winning film composer Phil Mountford to perform and record a specially commissioned piece, “ The Suite of the Fallen Soldier ", to great acclaim. We hope you enjoy our selection of songs tonight

Arrow Vale Singers
Arrow Vale Singers are a mixed voice choir made up of around 50 singers of all ages meeting every Wednesday evening from 8pm to 10pm at Batchley Community Centre, Redditch. We enjoy singing music of many styles from choral to spiritual, traditional folk songs to operetta and musical theatre to pop - something to suit everyone! The choir began 40 years ago when the West Mercia Police choir merged with a local group and ever since, the Arrow Vale Singers have performed numerous concerts and raised funds for many local and national charities through their performances in and around Worcestershire. We view singing as a great way to get out and socialise, have fun, learn new skills and disciplines, gain confidence, work in harmony with colleagues to produce a great sound and we love to welcome new members to come along to try us out - you do not need to read music and there are no scary auditions. We also have an active social life with regular skittles and quiz evenings and our post-concert buffets and end-of-term rehearsal 'Cake-Off' competitions have become legendary! We have an exciting programme of concerts planned so find more details by visiting our Website: www.arrowvalesingers.co.uk , 'like' us on Facebook or give us a follow on Twitter@ArrowVale_AVS
