Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir is on the look out for new members

The Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir was formed in 1943 and in its time has supported a number of charities and become well respected across the West Midlands.

The choir currently has 15 dedicated members who have a passion for singing.

Organisers say numbers have dwindled in recent years and they are looking for members to help revive it.

Stephen Winfield, chairman of the choir, said: "Sadly, over the last few years we have seen a decline in membership as have a good many singing groups and numerous male voice choirs, but we strive to maintain this great pastime and tradition.

"To enable this to continue we are respectively seeking new members mainly low sections such as bass and baritone sections.

"If you have been a member of a singing group or any choir who have regrettably declined and you would like to still be a part of this great pastime, or you may be retired but wish to meet new friends you will be made more than welcome to come along to one of our practice evenings."

The group practises every Wednesday evening at the Royal School, Penn Road from 7.30pm to 9.30pm, membership costs £2 per week and all music is provided.

Anyone interested should contact Stephen on 07951533963 or visit the choir's website for more information.
