Voicebeat is a world music community choir based in the West End of Glasgow. Why not sing with us?
We sing songs from around the world in easy unaccompanied harmony, often in foreign languages, in an informal, lively, supportive atmosphere. Whatever your background and experience, you are welcome at Voicebeat. There’s no audition and you don't need to be able to read music, as the songs are taught by ear. We meet in Kelvinbridge on Mondays at 7pm (see Rehearsals) and give regular performances. Anyone is welcome to just turn up at any point, but it's a good idea to check the rehearsal schedule first. Your first rehearsal is free. You can contact us at email@example.com and we are on Facebook at facebook.com/VoicebeatGlasgow
2023/24 is our 21ST ANNIVERSARY YEAR. We celebrated with a special anniversary concert and CD launch on 25 November at Adelaide Place, the beautifully refurbished venue in Bath St.

What they say…
Friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Nice folk to meet up with. Relaxed and non-intimidating environment. I felt welcomed and able to just do my best – a pressure-free choir with no audition is brilliant. Diverse, regular gigs. Interesting range of music. I feel more confident about my singing. Fun, informative and entertaining. Good variety of songs. Lots of social activities. Inclusive, fun, easy-going and challenging – a great balance. I love the openness and inclusivity of Voicebeat. Voicebeat made a very big difference in my life and helped me lots during a very hard time. Makes you happy, leave your worries behind! Friendship, fun and fine songs.
