The Sandiacre Male Voice Choir is 97 years old this year, having been founded in 1920.
During that time there have only been five Musical Directors, two of whom, Horace Wagg and Peter Barber served for 49 and 41 years respectively.Peter joined the choir in 1947 and is still a very active member, along with Bill Foulke who joined two years later and has been Treasurer since 1967.
The fortunes of the choir have varied over the years, with membership fluctuating from around forty to less than twenty, necessitating several emergency meetings to decide whether to continue.
However, no doubt due to the enthusiasm of a few dedicated members, it has continued, only being suspended during the war years, with regular practices recommencing in September 1946 .
A high point in the choir’s history was in May 1970 when a choir Golden Jubilee concert was held in the May Hall at Trent College
Long Eaton, with international guest singers David Hughes and Jacqueline Delman (admission by ticket only, priced at 10/=, 7/6d and 5/=) 
Since then the choir has entertained many local organisations and raised funds for many worthy causes through its annual concerts which commenced in 1967.
Our present Conductor is Stuart Graham who took over the baton in September 2012 and under his leadership we look forward to
celebrating our centenary in three years time!
 
Our present membership stands at around thirty and, we continue to expand!

Founded in 1920, Sandiacre Male voice choir consists of around 30 Gentlemen, each with a passion for music.

Join Sandiacre Male Voice Choir in the coming years as we start to celebrate 100 years of entertaining the local community. With a varied repertoire from traditional choral pieces,
