Rushmoor 'Odd Fellows' Male Voice Choir

About

Throughout the year the choir performs at various locations around the Rushmoor area, and sometimes further afield, to help local charities with their fundraising. They perform in churches, village halls and residential homes, helping to raise around £10,000 every year for local good causes. If you are considering organising such an event for your local charity please contact the Concert Secretary - see website for details.

Twice a year they organise and present their own major charity concerts promoted under the “Singing For You” banner. The proceeds from these perennial concerts benefit specific charities with local connections – (see the Funds Raised area on the About page on their website). These concerts are greatly enhanced with the addition of other talented artists as guests to add to the diversity and enjoyment of these highly popular occasions.

They meet at 7:30 p.m. every Monday at North Camp Methodist Church Hall, Lynchford Road, Farnborough, GU14 6EG. They also have occasional extra rehearsals before major concerts.

Each member is expected to attend regular rehearsals. The choir does take a short break at Easter (one week), Christmas (two weeks) and a summer break from mid-July to early September.

About Rushmoor Male Voice Choir

Rushmoor 'Odd Fellows' Male Voice Choir is made up of a group of men based in the Hampshire/Surrey area who love to sing. Founded in 1960 to sing in the Aldershot Music Festival, approaches to local church choirs brought volunteers from many backgrounds with an odd one from here and an odd one from there, so the name “Odd Fellows” was coined.
The choir aim to entertain their audiences, to raise money for charity and to have fun doing it!
In their concerts, they try to cater for all tastes with a repertoire ranging from classical to modern, from anthems and spirituals to show tunes and popular songs. They provide their services to charities and help to raise around £10,000 each year for local good causes.
