Woven Chords is a mixed choir from Stamford who sing unaccompanied harmony songs from across the globe. Celebrating the richness and variety of the human voice, Woven Chords’ acappella singing gives expression to sumptuous harmonies from many different cultural traditions.
We are a very friendly and informal choir, open to anyone over 16 years of age, men and women. We do not hold auditions and no previous experience or the need to read music is necessary as all songs are taught by ear. If you can speak - then you can sing! The emphasis is on having fun singing together.
The choir meets each Thursday at the Stamford Arts Centre to learn and practice
the 200+ repertoire of songs. At the end of each term a concert is performed to provide
the choir with an opportunity to share the songs and the enjoyment!

Woven Chords goes international - The Netherlands, we are Home!
Strong Chords of Friendship woven In Holland.
Well! What can we say?! We at Woven chords have enjoyed a magnificent five day visit to Castricum in Holland. We have deepened and strengthened our ties with Vokaal Kabaal. Musically we have been invigorated and inspired.
The concerts at the Reformed Church and the Jac P Thijsse College provided larger audiences than we had ever experienced and their appreciation of our music was uplifting. Two standing ovations caused serious goose bumps! Sharing two stages with Vokaal Kabaal provided a musical experience beyond compare and observing the mutual respect and admiration of our two musical directors Liz Underhill and Rolien Eikelenboom was very moving. Add in to this mix a well organized social programme, including sightseeing, dinner in the homes of choir members and after concert parties and there was a fire-proof recipe for success.The welcome and generosity of our Dutch hosts went beyond the extra mile and this trip will live in everyone’s hearts and memories for a long time to come. We are looking forward to the next steps….so watch this space
