What is the Rhubaba Choir?

The Rhubaba Choir provides the opportunity for individuals to sing together in a welcoming, eclectic group and share singing experiences throughout the year. We sing at gigs, events, for performances and often in strange places. The repertoire of the choir is largely defined by the choir members themselves, and recent works have swung between works by 13th Century Anchorite, Julian of Norwich, Ivor Cutler and Iggy Pop.

The Choir also acts as a commissioning platform for new works, intended to provide invited artists, musicians and writers with the resource of collective voices as a material. Rhubaba invite artists to make works for and with the voices of the choir, whether through traditional means or by using the voice in other, more experimental ways. If you are looking for a fun and exciting way to come together with a community of people, enjoy singing and want to be challenged in the ways you use your voice, then the Rhubaba Choir could be for you.

We are not looking for professional standard singing and welcome anyone who wants to lend their voice, regardless of prior musical experience. We mostly work by ear, rather than from sheet music. The choir meets on an occasional basis and there is a £2 contribution which goes towards the cost of providing hot soup at the practices. Newcomers are always welcome.
