Dumfries Male Voice Choir
Dumfries Male Voice Choir have been singing and having fun doing it since 1950. We are a friendly bunch, who meet together to rehearse on Wednesday nights from September to May. We often sing for our supper by performing at charity events throughout the South of Scotland. During these performances we invite young musicians and singers to join us as our policy is to encourage them and to provide a platform for them to perform in public. Occasionally we are even invited to sing at weddings.
The highlight of the choir’s year and the culmination of all our practicing is our annual concert which is usually held in April. We are always happy to meet with and perform alongside other choirs visiting our area.
The choir also enjoys occasional away days, or even weekends to take part in competitions or concerts. The choir have competed in Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Also in recent years we have visited and sung in the twin towns of Dumfries, Gifhorn in Germany and Annapolis in America.
We are always on the lookout for new members who will be made most welcome. Anyone interested should come along to our rehearsals, details of which are on our Join Us page.

Our Next Concert will be in aid of Children First.

Children 1st is Scotland’s National Children’s charity. Some children have little to smile about. We’re determined to give them reasons to.
We help Scotland’s families to put children first, with practical advice and with support in difficult times. And when the worst happens, we support survivors of abuse, neglect, and other traumatic events in childhood, to recover.
We help Scotland’s communities to play their part in looking-out for and protecting children.
We listen to Scotland’s children and families. And when government or society fails to hear them or respect their rights, we speak out.
SINGING FOR YOUR HEALTH
Doctors and scientists have announced recently that following a study which has been carried out over a six year period, singing in a choir has been found to boost levels of immune proteins which can help the body in fighting off cancer. This is good news indeed. Another reason to consider joining Dumfries Male Voice Choir. Singing is also good for Cardio Vascular exercising. (Breath control). Also for Brain Training in older people. (Learning the words and music). The doctors and scientists refer to it as “socially, emotionally, psychologically and biologically beneficial”. All we know is that it is a great deal of fun and it raises a lot of money for charities near and far, local and national.
So gentlemen, here’s to your health and a fun way to improve or sustain it.
