Our Members

The Story Began In May 1957

"The Gentlemen Songsters" come from all walks of life, and cover a wide age range.

One of the original nine members from back in May 1957, Don Marsh, is still with the choir, although sadly at the end of 2003, Don announced his retirement as a singing member, but he was very pleased to be elected as a Life Member and Vice President of the Choir.

Our members come from all walks of life, and are from a wide age range - many of whom are still helping turn the wheels of British industry, but the membership also includes those who have served their working-life sentence and are now retired, but are often are seen pushing prams containing their grand children, or are driving Granddad's taxi to and from school.

There is an eclectic list of professions or former professions, from teachers to engineers, clerical to manual workers, surgeons to police officers and funeral directors to former mayors. The list is limitless!

We are always looking for new members, no matter how old or young. If you are interested, please feel free to come to one of our rehearsals, held every Monday (except Bank Holidays when it is the following Wednesday) at 7.30pm in the Church Hall at Stream Road Methodist Church, Kingswinford. You will be made most welcome, and you never know, you might get to like us.
