Gloucester Folk choir
Gloucester folk choir is a new community choir for Gloucester, based at The Folk of Gloucester. It begins on the 23rd Feb and runs initially for a 6 week term, 7-8:30pm each Thursday. The choir will be based on natural voice principals, meaning that all voices are beautiful and perfect and are welcome in the space, there will be no auditions and generally we will not be using music.
The choir will be run by Sorrel Wilde, who also runs the Island folk choir in Bristol and has been running singing events for 15 years. Having grown up in Gloucester, Sorrel has relocated here and is working between Glos and Bristol. Sorrels style of teaching is playful and focussed, she aims to put singers at ease and grow to love their voices and find their innate musicality.

The songs will be largely from the British folk tradition, but will also reach further afield and also into the wonderful Natural Voice network repertoire of gorgeous circle songs and seasonal songs.
“Sorrel holds space for singing and sound in a way that instantly puts you at ease and connects the whole group. I come away from every session with a warm heart, a big smile and beautiful song arrangements floating through my my mind and off my tongue all week. It’s magic!” (Freya, choir member)
The choir will be lgbtq+ friendly, neurodivergent friendly and as accessible as it can be. Please get in touch if you have any specific needs that we can try to accommodate.
