Ludlow Larks is a community choir which meets every two weeks for a good, hearty sing. Larks is led by singer and natural voice practitioner, Polly Bolton. All the songs are learned by ear and there is no need to read music.
Larks started in February 1998 as an idea from a voice workshop led by Polly Bolton a few weeks earlier. We have about 40 voices. The group is open to all genders and abilities and is suitable for people from 16 to 90 plus!
Larks meet on alternate Wednesdays 7.30 till 9pm at Ludlow Women’s Centre, off Church Street.
Cost is £5 if paid in advance, and £6 if you drop in. The first session is free.
The group is open to ALL, regardless of whether you have singing experience or can read music as all the songs are learned by ear. We sing a cappella harmony songs of all sorts; Bulgarian and Latin chants, rounds, African songs, bee bop, gospel and occasional improvisation and Polly’s songs. In fact we’ll have a go at almost anything!
We do occasionally do public performances, local fund raising events and community theatre performances, and hold a big summer concert in Ludlow Methodist Church to raise funds for Water Aid. A few times a year we go to a beautiful place and have a sing and a picnic. We meet up for social events and occasionally arrange one day workshops and weekend singing retreats.
We join in with other community choirs in the area at occasional BIG SINGS.
