Dacorum Community Choir

Dacorum Community Choir Musical Director Rufus Frowde

We are a daytime choir, and we welcome adult singers of all abilities – there is no audition to join.

We rehearse on Tuesday mornings 9.45am to 11.15am during the school term at Astley Cooper School in Grovehill, Hemel Hempstead or sometimes at the Church of the Resurrection behind the shops in Grovehill.

Dacorum Community Choir was formed in November 2009 in a collaboration between Astley Cooper School, Hertfordshire Music Service and our Musical Director, the conductor Rufus Frowde.

In January 2012 we became a Registered Charity, No 1145821.

We aim to give members the opportunity to sing together in a choir, perhaps for the first time, singing a wide repertoire from classical, world music and folk to gospel and pop. You don’t need to be able to read music to take part – it’s all explained as we go along.

We have given performances at a variety of venues across Dacorum. These include short concerts in Residential Homes, outdoor concerts at Music on the Moor and the Herts County Show, and our very successful charity Christmas Concerts. In 2013 we sang in Neu Isenburg – Hemel Hempstead’s twin town in Germany – and in September staged a wonderfully successful Opera with professional soloists and orchestra. In March 2014 we sang at the Royal Albert Hall in the Herts Schools’ Gala Concert, which won a special award at the HEART OF FLAME award ceremony! Our Advent Concert at St John’s on December 6th 2014 was a fabulous event combining ourselves, the Dacorum Youth Orchestra and the Melodia Choir from Neu Isenburg.

If you have ever thought about singing, or want to give it a try, then do come along for a couple of rehearsals and find out if it is for you – there are over 100 of us, and we are a friendly bunch, so you won’t be singing alone!
