Have You Always Wanted To Sing ?
Take Your Singing Out Of The Shower !!!
Come and join us at Get Vocal, a friendly community choir.  We meet every Wednesday from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at the Orchard Street Church in Chichester. NEW MEMBERS ARE VERY WELCOME.

We sing a wide variety of songs from around the world ranging from folk to traditional African music in an a capella (unaccompanied) style.  There is no pressure to have a perfect voice or any need to be able to read music.  All adults are welcome – men, women, old and young.  Just come along and enjoy yourself. We have an experienced Music Director.

Get Vocal has supported Water Aid Portsmouth and London over a number of years.

Get Vocal has also performed at the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum Christmas fairs held in recent years.

Get Vocal Membership


The Association's objectives are to be a community choir which is open to all in the Chichester and surrounding area. We want to enjoy singing together in an atmosphere of fun, to be able to harmonise, in a variety of songs without the need to be able to read music or be technically perfect. We hold to the view that everyone is able to sing and we commit to promoting a community environment with inclusivity as an imperative, but with no pressure to perform.
