Hereford Police Male Choir over six decades has built a reputation for quality singing and all–round good entertainment. That's why the Choir is in big demand across the region, singing in churches, village halls, garden parties and weddings. It is estimated the choir has, over the years, helped concert organisers raise £1m for charities. Contact Choir Secretary David Coulson to enquire about concert dates.

Another hectic year

Last year was busy as the choir celebrated its Diamond Jubilee, and 2018 is going to be just as hectic. As well as their own concert repertoire the police choir's weekly rehearsal will involve learning a complete concert programme – some in Welsh – for the highly prestigious London Welsh Festival of Male Voice Choirs in October, staged at the Royal Albert Hall in London, one of the world's most famous concert halls. The choir has been privileged to be invited to the Royal Albert Hall on many occasions to sing as part of a massed choir alongside some world–class international male voice choirs. Said one chorister:

“We have all watched on television great music events like The Proms, as well as classical and pop concerts, and been overawed by the acoustic quality of this magnificent building. But actually to be there on stage, accompanied by a full orchestra and singing to an audience of 5000, is a magical musical moment few others will ever experience.”

The choir is recognised as a great ambassador for the West Mercia Police Force, which has just celebrated its 50th anniversary. To mark the occasion we will be performing at the Force headquarters at Hindlip, Worcester, in February. Hereford's Royal National College for the Blind this year marks its 40th anniversary in the city, and the Choir is delighted to have been asked to stage a concert to mark the occasion.

Hay-on-Wye is world–renowned for its annual Literature Festival and this Spring the Police Choir will be making its debut at the Festival, on a date yet to be announced. The invitation is yet another recognition of the choir's high standing in the world of music. It's this hard–earned reputation which has attracted a recent influx of new choristers to join the Choir's ranks, and although the choir has a busy year lined up there is still the opportunity to fit in a few more.
