PSG choir was founded in 2014 by Will Blake in the Village of Derry Hill, Wiltshire. Will set up the choir with the intention of using it to bring his local community together and give people an experience of doing something totally different and fun during the week. Since then, PSG have performed at a great number of shows and concerts across the Wiltshire and Somerset areas including Longleat House festival of light, Calne Arts and Music festival, Bowood house concert for the charity ‘Headway’, a one day Wiltshire tour, A concert for Macmillan Cancer care at the Neeld Hall in Chippenham and many more shows besides.
The most important thing about PSG is that we are welcoming to anyone. It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced singer or just someone looking for a new adventure after work during the week. We offer a totally pressure free environment where you only sing what you feel comfortable with. That being said, we still have many opportunities for experienced singers to release their inner divas if they want to. It doesn’t matter who you are or what your musical background is; anyone can join PSG choir. We learn all of our songs by ear using original arrangements written by Will. Don’t worry though, we all have copies of the lyrics so that you don’t have to stress about the words.
PSG now has five choirs in Calne, Melksham, Devizes, Chippenham and Trowbridge. All the sessions are open to new members and to make sure you get the best experience possible, we will hook you up with a ‘buddy’ for the first couple of weeks to make sure you get to know other members of the choir and engage in the social experience as well as the musical one. We welcome anyone aged 16 and up. Every term, we always start some new songs, so if you are thinking of joining the choir, you can be sure that everyone will be on the same page as you in terms of learning the new material.
PSG is all about hope, happiness and getting pleasure out of the music we sing. We perform roughly 6-8 concerts a year and at the end of each month, we all get together for one giant rehearsal encompassing members from across the five sessions. You really don’t want to miss these sessions. Singing with 100 or more other singers really is an experience you will never forget!
So what are you waiting for? Join our PSG family and experience the incredible feeling that singing in PSG choir gives you as well as the support network and friendships that inevitably come from joining a choir like ours. You don’t have to book anything, simply turn up on the night and we will do the rest! For details on the different rehearsal times, visit the ‘Join’ page
