Otley: Suffolk Singers call on men to “join the choral revolution”
- Credit: Archant
A choral group, once crowned best in Suffolk, has made an urgent appeal for male singers to join its ranks.
The Suffolk Singers said it has a waiting list of female voices but is desperately lacking bass and tenor performers.
Janis Haerle, the group’s publicity officer, said that although singing was now reputedly the second most popular pastime in the UK, the new enthusiasm had found more favour with women than “the more reserved male of the species”.
“Uninhibited in the bath or on the terraces, men seem to retreat to the safety of the cave when the opportunity to stand before an audience presents itself,” she said.
“Even successful choirs like Suffolk Singers are noticing the dearth of men wanting to join the choral revolution.”
