'Coming to choir has been one of the best things
I've done this year, so thanks for all your hard work and inspiration'. Romie


Voice of the People
'Voice of the People' (VOTP) is a non-audition community choir and everyone is welcome to join.
New members of all ages and abilities are always welcome. We meet on Thursdays at Broomfield and Wellington.
We enjoy songs, rounds and chants from around the world including the UK!! VOTP performs at street events and for charity, and has toured to Krakow, Prague, Moravia, Italy and France. We love to tour and to meet, perform and socialise with other choirs. We don't speak much Czech, Hungarian or Polish but we share a love of singing together and that binds us in so many ways.
We have recently sung in Hungary, in Autumn 2013, and will re-visit our friends in Priverno, Italy in 2014.
