ANYONE who heard New Mill Male Voice Choir recently at their Huddersfield Town Hall concert with the Band of the Yorkshire Regiment will know how well they can sing.
The choir has over 50 singers and already fills its rehearsal rooms in New Mill Club each Tuesday night.
But that doesn’t mean that the choir is not trying to sound even better. And to do that they need more singers of one particular kind.
So if you are a chap with a rich, dark chocolate brown sounding sort of voice, then you could be just the sort of singer that New Mill is looking for. Yours could be the kind of voice to give the choir that extra bit of depth.
Choir Musical Director, Alan Brierley, said: “Our basses already do a great job in providing a platform for the higher voices.
“They are the foundation on which the other harmonies are built, but we would benefit from a couple of extra men.
“They do not have to be experienced singers, but they do need naturally deep voices.”
The choir is particularly keen to get into tip-top shape for 2013 – their 21st Birthday Year – and want to do themselves proud when they compete, for the first time, at the Cornwall Music Festival in May.
That gives any new basses time to settle in. Anyone interested should just go along to a rehearsal at New Mill Club and they will be made very welcome.
Alternatively go along to their Christmas Concert at New Mill Church on Saturday, December 15, hear what the choir sounds like and have a word with any choir member.
You might just find yourself with a new use for Tuesday nights.
