Community Choirs in Usk and Newport
Gwent Music Community Choirs
Gwent Music runs community choirs in Usk and Newport, and we are always looking for new members of all ages and abilities to join.
You don’t have to have musical experience to join and each community choir has a range of absolute beginners to more experienced choristers who are aged late teens and above!
We sing a range of musical genres including pop, gospel and classical and our choirs perform regularly either individually or in combination with other choirs. Membership is only £40 per term.
Recent studies show that singing really is good for you with health benefits such as strengthening our immune systems or reducing high blood pressure. Additionally, it can improve confidence, self-perception and boost creativity and problem solving. And above all, we believe singing should be fun, so expect to laugh a lot! So all in all, the feel-good factor is there for the taking!
We currently have two choirs to choose from depending on where you live or work:
Monmouthshire Community Choir
