Heaton Voices was founded in January 2000 by Richard Scott. Beginning a a small group of around 20, the choir has now grown to almost 60. Many of the members have been in the choir for years, and the cohesion and warmth of our sound is something which can only be evoked by a true community choir.
Richard Scott remains our musical director, and his skill for arranging music always keeps our audiences entertained. From the 60s to the noughties, our eclectic mix of singing is something we pride ourselves on.
Each year, Heaton Voices chooses a charity to support. Our charity for 2018 is The Comfry Project:
‘The Comfrey Project CIO provides asylum seekers and refugees across Tyneside with a safe, welcoming environment, which promotes personal wellbeing through a sense of place and belonging. This is achieved by various shared creative activities, including allotment gardening,
cooking and crafts. We have a down to earth approach to social integration and community health. Listening, sharing and inclusion are fundamental to
everything we do.’
