ABOUT AFO CHOIR
We believe joining the right singing sessions can improve your health and well-being and we are not the only ones. Many doctors and health professionals are endorsing joining a choir as a great way to look after your health and wellbeing, just like a gym! We believe and know EVERYONE CAN SING.
No previous experience needed, no judgment. All we need is your desire to sing AND there are NO auditions!
MORE ABOUT US
We believe our choirs are a large part of our community and along the way, we raise lots of money for many charities. In fact, since our inception 10 years ago, we have raised well over £60,000 for various charities.
We welcome men and women of all ages from all walks of society to our choir and are proud of our wonderful, friendly atmosphere.
Our repertoire is varied, we choose to sing rock, Gospel, pop soul, the odd song from a show and even an occasional classical piece. We pride ourselves on making all of our repertoire accessible for all levels of experience. We would love to be the outlet for your voice and your passion for singing. We offer weekly sessions that are fun and friendly. We provide non-audition, amateur choirs based in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. You do not need to read music or have had any previous experience.
AFO is a family-run organisation, established in 2011 and offers weekly singing sessions in Hull, Beverley, Market Weighton, Driffield, Ripon and Cleethorpes. Our choirs are informal and welcoming with a great atmosphere in all of our specially chosen venues.
