Pop & rock choir just for gents

If you like pop and rock and you'd like to sing in an all-male choir, why not give The Raff Pack at try?

What we do

Riff Raff choir sings pop music in harmony. You don't need to be able to read music: all of the parts are taught by ear, and we provide word sheets and audio tracks with which to practise. There's no audition and you won't be asked to sing alone, it's all about having fun singing and enjoying yourself! We also have regular socials :-) For more info about the choir and teachers, please see About Us.

 

Are there spaces available?

We hold a list of people who would like to join Riff Raff when a place becomes available. We only take new people at the start of a term (see term dates below). Please DON'T just turn up to a choir session, please DO fill in the REGISTER INTEREST form and we will add you to the waiting list. Places will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis in the two weeks prior to the start of a term. 

Taster sessions

For the first couple of rehearsals of each term, when there are spaces available, we invite new members to come for a taster session (you only need pay for this session, to see if you like it before committing to the term). We teach completely new material in these sessions. We also sometimes run one-off taster sessions. If you would like to give Riff Raff a try, please sign up using the Register Interest form below.
