About WBSS

Our Aims are:

We do not hold auditions as we wish to draw in and support as many people as possible from our local community to join with us and enjoy singing.  We perform to the highest standards possible and trust our members to attend rehearsals regularly, listen carefully to the Musical Director and each other.  Other members of the choir will offer help and support.  New members may find it confusing at first but if you persevere you will find your confidence grows as will your enjoyment.  An ability to read music is not essential but will obviously help.

We are members of the National Association of Choirs - joining the nation in choral singing

 We rehearse every Tuesday evening at the Methodist Church Hall
on Musters Road in West Bridgford from 7.45 to 9.45.  
Rehearsals always start with a fun warm-up. 
Music is provided and some pieces can also be purchased from the choir.
Rehearsing at home is encouraged by using recorded vocal tracks on our Google Drive.
Since returning to rehearsals following the lifting of COVID 19 restrictions we have been recording most of the rehearsals for those who can't attend and for any members wishing to brush up on their songs. These videos are on a private YouTube Channel.

We raise funds for charity, selecting 2 different charities each year

For 2023-24 the charities are:
Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance  & Jessie’s Fund


Social Singers started in 1992 at Jesse Gray Primary School, West Bridgford, Nottingham.
In the past 31 years it has developed into a thriving community mixed voice choir with around 80 members.

We usually have at least one visit a year to another city to collaborate and socialise with other choirs. 

We have been to (among others) Trondheim in Norway , Gateshead and Whitley Bay, Liverpool, Kings Lynn, Blackpool and York.  See the photo gallery.
