Welcome to Our Choir

Welcome to the website for Singing for Pleasure, a very friendly community choir based in Warwick and the only local choir that rehearses during the day.

We meet every Wednesday in term time from 10.00 – 11.30am at the Unitarian Chapel, High Street Warwick CV34 4AX and you are always welcome to drop in and meet us.

Jeremy Dibb

Jeremy is the Director of Singing for Pleasure and is also the Research and Delivery Lead for Warwick – A Singing Town.

Jeremy retired as Director of the County Music Service in 2020 and is now busier than ever with Warwick – A Singing Town, Bedworth – A Singing Town,  Warwickshire Sings and the junior girls’ choir at Warwickshire Youth Choirs as well as Singing for Pleasure.

Rehearsals and Events

Singing for Pleasure rehearsals follow school term dates and we look for more unusual events and venues to sing at.

We have just performed at All Saints Junior School and invite you to an open rehearsal on Wednesday 20 March from 10.00 – 11.00am followed by tea/coffee and cake.

Our repertoire includes a wide range of songs  – some learnt with music and some by rote – because some of our members read music and some don’t. We are a choir with something for everyone.

We are very pleased to be a partner choir for Warwick – A Singing Town and we are particularly keen to sing in the community at care homes, schools and community centres and are always ready to be invited!
