Founded 2007: ‘I love the fact that I'm able to empower women with confidence and a new “Diva” attitude. I'm so proud of the way we improve, the experiences we share and of friendships that will last a lifetime. DaleDiva is all about sharing the journey - and I don't ever want it to end ... Since our early days progress has been swift and successful with highlights including medals in various national and international competitions, recording albums and winning Channel 5's "Don't Stop Believing". Our achievements mean we're a popular chorus and now have a thorough audition process and probation period to make sure our standards stay high. But despite our success we never lose sight of who we are. We're ordinary women doing extraordinary things - and singing together because we love it’.

‘Formed in 1987 from the white dust of a limestone quarry that is Middleton by Wirksworth, the Dalesmen have grown from a few like-minded friends to a near 70 strong choir. Their original aims of bringing the enjoyment of choral music to the wider public and of supporting charitable institutions are still very much what the choir is about. Each year we take part in over 12 concerts in venues ranging from modest village halls to grand concert halls, and in the process we entertain many hundreds of people and over the years have raised tens of thousands of pounds for charity.’

‘Founded as “The Derby Light Orchestra” in 1949 ... the orchestra originally concentrated on “light classical” repertoire. Performance standards were initially high and the orchestra continues in this tradition ... With time, the name and characteristics of the orchestra changed as it matured and grew. Now the entire orchestral repertoire is played, from smaller scale baroque performance to the mightiest symphonic works ... We often invite new and emerging singers and instrumentalists to perform, usually leading to some extraordinarily exciting and memorable concerts.‘

We perform about a dozen concerts each year ... The youngest member of the band was born at around the time the oldest member retired so when we say all ages welcome we mean it! Playing in a band is an excellent way for all members of a family to join in an activity on an equal footing. Some parents have decided to take up an instrument for the first time so as to share an interest with their children. It certainly beats providing the normal parent’s taxi service. The band offers a change from the school teaching environment for younger players. The enthusiasm and light heartedness of the youngsters keeps the adults from taking themselves too seriously. If you’re still unsure then come along and see what it’s like, we’re a friendly bunch so come and join us!’

NB the term “chorus” is the American term for choir. Our main reason for singing is entertainment, both for our audiences and ourselves, but we also take part in competitions from time to time. Over the years the chorus has enjoyed considerable success, for example, winning the gold medal on five occasions at the UK National Barbershop Convention ... In fact, the chorus has never been out of the top few positions in all the years it has been eligible to compete in this competition. Consequently the chorus has travelled to the USA on several occasions to represent the UK at the International Convention.’

There are also no voice tests or auditions to gain entry to the Choirs’ training programme. Our regular performances include prestigious venues, such as cathedrals and national concert halls. The overwhelming success of the children’s choirs led to the launch of an adult choir.

The Musical Director will shut you both into the audition room (i.e. the kitchen) and ask you to sing a few lines and notes to gauge your natural range. Are you a Bass or a Baritone, a Second Tenor or a Top Tenor?
