Vigo Singers is an amateur all female choir of up to thirty five voices that rehearses on Tuesday evening at
Vigo Village School,
Kent, DA13 0RL.
We sing a wide range of music under the leadership of our musical director Ciara Considine who, for rehearsals, conducts from the piano. We perform two to three major concerts a year with proceeds normally going to local charities. Venues for singing engagements have included Leeds Castle and local churches. Three successful concert tours have also been undertaken; in 2013 to Connemara in Ireland, in 2015 to Charente-Maritime in France and in 2017 to County Kerry in Ireland. New members are welcome subject to our maximum membership of 35 voices. We are currently at this number and have opened a waiting list. If you are interested in joining, please contact us for details.

Dates are agreed at the beginning of each academic year but may be changed if necessary. Details on the member's notice board The fees are £50* per term and should normally be paid by the third week of the term. Cheques are payable to Vigo Singers and should be handed to the treasurer. Music scores are normally provided out of the £50 fee.
At present, performance dress is black skirts, black tops and pink roses (or red scarves at Christmas). The skirts and tops are bought by individual choir members. The red scarf and pink roses are provided by the choir and remain part of our stock. Losses must be paid for.
All music is kept in a black A4 folder. The Music Representative, appointed by the committee will oversee the distribution of music but it is the individual member's responsibility to organise and check their music and report any shortfalls.
Members are encouraged to discuss suggestions or concerns with a member of the committee, which will be passed on to the musical director.
