My lovely choir, The Lost Sound, based in Buckfastleigh, Devon, is about to come back to full choir singing. We haven’t heard the full choir since March 2020. We’ve been getting by since last December on zoom and this month we’ve been singing in groups of six, outside. But….Come May 18th, we will be meeting outside and will have all our singers together. What an amazing day that will be – we cannot wait to hear our sound again!

Developing our voices
We are looking for new recruits – two or three basses and baritones. With 2 of our basses on sabbatical this term, and no indoor concerts, it’s a good time to join us. We’re a friendly bunch of singers, dedicated to producing a vibrant, cohesive sound and making music together. As a choir, we work both on our own voices and the overall sound that we produce. Every rehearsal we make time to implement good vocal and choral practise. We regularly develop new techniques and experiment with different exercises to see what we can learn. Even if something is hard – we meet the challenge to get better at what we do!

In normal times, the choir perform a lot. Some seasons it can be 8 shows over a few months. We have attracted a hearty and loyal following, with full houses at many gigs. All our set is off by heart, so you will need a good memory!

We need great male singers who can sing in tune easily, are up for developing their own voices and are keen to learn more. Our audition process is simple, prepare an a cappella song and then I will run you through some scales to see where your range lies etc. I aim to make it a bit like a short lesson, so that you can get something from it, too. It’s informal and low key, I just am wanting to hear if your voice fits with the voices I already have.

If you’re interested or know anyone who is – please do get in touch – Male singers are SO hard to find! We know you’re out there so please get in touch! Email me, Sandra, at
