Neighbourhood Voices are a community choir who perform unique arrangements of modern pop and indie songs. Founded by Gina Walters in 2017, the choir was born out of a desire to create safe spaces for Sheffield signers to find their own voices.
They say: “Neighbourhood Voices became a reality after realising there wasn't a space for women to learn and perform pop, alternative and indie songs in the city. A choir that could challenge people to develop their voices and musicianship, but also to create a safe social space for friendships to form and grow.”
They now consist of 60 singers and have performed nationwide. In the past 12 months they’ve performed with Self Esteem at the Leadmill and opened Steve Lamacq’s show for BBC World Music Day.
At this performance, expect to hear unique arrangements of Laura Mvula, Caroline Polachek, All Saints and more, backed by a live band.
