Village Voices, Towersey

We meet every Wednesday evening in term time, from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m. at Towersey Memorial Hall except for the third Wednesday of each month when we meet generally at Bledlow Village hall

Although we are not a performing choir, we do love to sing at local events when invited. In the past these have included the Towersey Festival, Towersey Fête, St Andrew's Christmas Tree Festival, Christmas Lights Festival in Oxford, Oxford Christmas Market in Broad Street and Thame Market.

Singing and cultural holiday in Morocco with Bruce Knight 8 - 15 December 2020

Bruce is one of the great choir leaders at our Choir's festival.

AT LA MAISON ANGLAISE (HOLIDAYS WITH HEART) TAROUNDANT, MOROCCO.

Join me for a truly special cultural and singing experience at an award winning, comfortable, sustainably-run traditional guest house based in the ancient walled market town of Taroudant -  in the fertile Souss Valley between the High Atlas and Anti-Atlas mountains. We will sing each day in the beautiful cool setting of Maison Anglaise and then you can enjoy a range of cultural visits and activities supported by excellent local guides exploring the culture, landscape, wildlife and history of the area. Options to trek or laze in the sun!

Bruce has led singing workshops and community choirs for almost 20 years and is well known on both the choirs festival and camp scene. He likes to arrange and teach many styles of simple harmony songs which are “immensely satisfying to sing”. Bruce is known for his wonderfully inclusive and relaxed style, and his talent for enabling people to sing with wild abandon. Bruce has previously spent 6 weeks in Morocco with his family and can’t wait to return!"
