Welcome to the Gresley Male Voice Choir Website

Based in Swadlincote, nestled at the southern tip of Derbyshire, England, Gresley takes its name from the Parish of Church Gresley nearby, where the choir was born in 1904. 

The choir has over 50 members and fulfills on average 22 engagements a year performing for a range of societies from small groups, churches to national bodies, and has toured extensively, in the U.K., Ireland, Europe and U.S.A. including a number of choir exchange visits.

Rehearsals are held in the schoolroom at Central Methodist Church Schoolroom, Newhall, Swadlincote, DE11 0TU on Wednesdays 7.30 to 9.00pm. and Fridays 7.30 to 9.15pm. The choir has an extensive repertoire covering classical, operetta, grand opera, music from the shows, popular music, part songs and religious music.

Mission Statements:

“ To share the joy of singing with each other and our audiences in the 
spirit of fellowship, charity and artistic growth
To advance the public knowledge and appreciation of choral music by means of concerts and other public performances "

Hi, we’re always on the lookout for new members, so if you’re one of those who is always humming whilst at work, or singing your heart out at the match, or belting out the standards when watching the latest talent show on the TV, then come along and give us a try. 

We’ve had quite a number of new recruits over the last year or so and all of them have said how much they wished they had joined us a long time ago. 

Singing with a choir is ‘on trend’ right now, for very good reasons – keeps you active and healthy; it’s a lot of fun; you meet lots of new folk; and you get to perform some fantastic tunes to really appreciative audiences and raise money for charities at the same time.

If you have an interest in  joining the choir, contact the Choir Registrar on email gmv.choir@gmail.com and come along and visit us and "try us out"!!
