Who are we?

Well-Versed Community Choir is the new name for two choirs who regularly join forces to perform, as well as performing in their own right: Sound Waves Community Choir, based in Bishop Auckland,

Co. Durham and formed in 2011, and Vocal Soul Community Choir, based in Darlington, formed in 2012.

The choir is ever-growing and currently has around 100 members on its books across the two branches. The choirs, under their former names, have performed many public concerts, raising well over £10,000 for local and national charities.

Our first concert as Well-Versed will be on Saturday, May 11th 2024 at Hummersknott Academy in Darlington. We are delighted to have special guests with us too! Kissed, featuring Charlie Hardwick (ex-Emmerdale) will perform a set. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30 start. Tickets are £10 - ask a choir member for details, or send us an email below!


What do we do? Where are we based?

We rehearse each Wednesday and Thursday evening from 7.30-9.30:

Wednesdays: The Studio, Stanhope Building, Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College, Vane Terrace, Darlington DL3 7AU

Thursdays: Bishop Auckland Methodist Church Hall, Cockton Hill Road, Bishop Auckland DL14 7NP (Opposite the hospital).


Why not come along, have a good sing and have a good laugh too! Singing in a choir has many health benefits, promoting good physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

What does it cost? Do I need to audition?

We are an all-inclusive choir and we do not audition members.

The choir has a wide range of ages, abilities and singing experience

but all levels are catered for.

The cost is £7 cash, or £7.25 via a contactless card or smartphone app per session with no up-front membership fee; you just turn up, pay and sing. As the music used is all written especially for the choir there is no charge for expensive sheet music either.

So how do I join?

Fill in the contact form on the main Choir page and we'll give you all the details. Rehearsals are every Wednesday and Thursday evening (you only need to come to one or the other!), but please check, especially during main holiday periods.
