All monies raised will go to Oxford & District Mencap.
About Voice Box
Voice Box Choir was formed in 2004 by Lesley Morris and Keith Harris. The choir, a lively and energetic group, which now has around 50 members, performs a wide repertoire of songs from different repertoires – Musical Theatre, Folk, Classical, Contemporary, Gospel and Music Hall. They have performed at venues all around Oxfordshire – churches, farms, concert halls, including Chipping Norton Theatre and taken part in festivals and street music.
Over the years they have toured and sung in Italy, Germany. France and Belgium. They love new challenges and have also raised thousands of pounds for local, National and International charities. Performances include the whole choir, some smaller groups and an impressive variety of solo voices.
