Who ARE The Telfordaires?


We are an all-male voice chorus based in Telford, Shropshire, specialising in unaccompanied singing from the barbershop tradition. We are a member of the British Association of Barbershop Singers and welcome new members. We offer our members a sense of achievement from taking on new challenges in the company of cheerful and friendly people, and our audiences the delight of being sung to in four-part harmony

Visit us VIRTUALLY Anytime!


Even in these times, our rehearsals are open to the public and to potential new members, so why not pay us a visit?

We rehearse every Wednesday evening from 7.30 - 9.30 using a well known video conferencing technology.  It allows us to maintain our social connections, and while the technology doesn't allow remote choral singing (due to the inherent delay in the connections), nevertheless, we have found ingenious and creative ways to work together on vocal technique and learn new songs  
As a visitor, we will invite you to shadow one of our members for the evening so you can get a flavour of who we are and what we do.  Go on - get in touch!
