Sussex Gruffs Male Voice Choir

We are a vibrant and friendly group who meet every Tuesday in Worthing, to sing a wide range of music from Mozart to folk songs, Show Tunes to traditional Sussex Songs. Over 40 strong, (and still recruiting) with ages ranging from 20 to over 80, we sing in harmony with a real sense of fun, and love to entertain audiences all around Sussex and beyond. In addition to our public concerts, we also sing for a number of different charities.

2016 - A challenging year.

 

With the tragic death of our Musical Director earlier this year, 2016 has proved to be challenging for the Choir. After singing at Andrew's funeral, we had to pick ourselves up and do what Andrew would have wanted - carry on. We are seriously indebted to Alan Pennels for stepping into Andrew's shoes on a temporary basis. What would we have done without him?

 

As you will see from the Musical Director's page, we have now appointed a new Musical Director and it was under his guidance and control that we performed with the Songbirds at West Worthing Baptist Church recently (see the Gallery for latest images). Several concerts are now planned for the coming months (see the Concerts & Repertoire page for more information) and we hope that our performances will go from strength to strength.

 

2015 - An Exciting Year

 

In March we sang at the National Association of Choirs Annual Conference on Saturday 21st March with The Rowland Singers, The Pleasure Singers, and The  Songbirds. The concert was held at the Assembly Hall, Worthing.

 

In May we sang at the International Male Voice Choir Festival in Cornwall.

A 5 day event where we sang at the Eden Project, Trebah Gardens, Truro Cathedral plus other  prestigious venues. A compilation of photos and video is now available on the Gallery and on our Performances page!

 

Our first local public concert of the year was at the Connaught Studio, Connaught Theatre on Sunday May 17th at 5.30pm. We had a very good audience and entertained with a selection entitled Bach, Beach Boys and Beer.

 

Our yearly concert at the Windmill Theatre Littlehampton, took place on Saturday 3rd October at 7pm with even more new songs.
