Our music


I know that some choirs boast things like "From Bach to Bruckner" or "From Partt to Pucchini" well not us! 

We do a bit of Burt Bacharach, or some Dolly Parton, or a bit of U2, mixed in with some Disney and Metallica!!

Ok so we'll admit it our strap line is "40's to noughties"

If you can't beat 'em why not join them.


An eclectic mix of stuff we like to sing, with no boundaries, and anyone can suggest a piece.


THATS what makes it fun!!!

Our Music

When we were growing up, we were told that we had to like a certain genre of music - in my teens you were either a 'Spandau Ballet' fan or a 'Duran Duran' follower! Well, since I've experienced many different types of music, from madrigals to rock, I really don't have a specific type of music that I call my own - MUSIC itself is mine, and I love many things from many different countries and types. 


So at Derby Community Choir we sing many different types of music, predominantly more modern stuff, but also things from musicals, and stuff maybe from the 1940's. If it sounds nice, and we feel good singing it, its in! There have been masses of songs that we've tried and decided we didn't like it, so we've ditched it for a while to see if we still feel the same in 12 months!


So if I list a few of the songs that we sing in the choir, its not an exhaustive list and who knows, next week we could be doing Abba, or The Beach Boys, or Adele, or even Metallica.
