About Thetford Voices
Thetford Voices is a project-based singing programme for 3 years old and above.
Established over ten years as part of the community music charity Thetford Music Project, Thetford Voices transferred to Thetford Singers in 2017, becoming the Junior branch of the adult choir.
Thetford Voices continues to run its Summer and Christmas Holiday Workshops and the performance-based Quire of Voices and is delighted to play its part in a coherent offer of opportunities for singers of all ages within and around the town.

Thetford Voices Open Singing Workshops run over Tuesday 13th &
Wednesday 14th August giving toddlers through to sixth formers the chance
to learn and perform a host of great songs.
The main two day course for 6 -16 year olds runs from 9.30 – 3.45 on
Tuesday and 1.30 – 8.00, with a concert for friends and family at 7.15, on
Wednesday. On Tuesday at 10.00 there is our Toddlers’ Hour for 3-5 year
olds and then for older students, 15 and over, a mixed voice Harmony
Session from 4.15 – 5.45.
The Strong Song Sing features not only anthemic show-stoppers and
rousing choruses, songs which celebrate the heroic and brave, but those also
which encourage strength and resilience – work tunes, protest anthems and
songs of personal inspiration. All great to sing. And carefully targeted at
groups within the age-range so that young and older, beginners as well as
experienced singers can find plenty to enjoy.
The workshops take place in Thetford Grammar School. Sponsored by the
Shadwell Community Fund, Thetford Town Council and Norfolk CC Arts
Project Fund, fees remain: £10 for the Main Course (£5 for a single day) and
£3 for Toddlers’ Hour and the Harmony Session. Supervision is provided by
an experienced DBS validated team over two friendly days of great music
