quirky choir online
Quirky Choir prides itself on being a very different kind of choir. It has a distinct identity and pushes the boundaries of what a choir should be.
Nobody needs to audition to join, and every week Doncaster residents of all ages and walks of life can come together to sing a variety of songs.
Quirky Choir takes place every Wednesday from 6.30 – 8.30pm.
Sessions regularly take place at The Point; however, The Point is currently closed to the public and so sessions will take place online for the foreseeable future.
We won’t be charging £4 as usual for sessions. However, if you are able, we encourage you to make a ‘pay as you feel’ donation when booking your ticket for the session.
Your donation will help us continue to create art with people in Doncaster to improve life, learning and health.

We are also pleased to share a special film, created as part of the Quirkus project, about our Quirky Choir, which you can watch here.
In 2018, Quirky Choir celebrated its 20th year by embarking on a year long project that both challenged the group and raised its profile. The Quirkus project enabled the choir to collaborate with four excellent artists: Ian McMillan, Luke Carver Goss, Hayley Youell and Lucky Moyo, who in turn worked not only with the choir but also with darts groups: Singing for Memory, Creative Directions, Swag Choir and Swaglets, as well as members of Doncaster Conversation Club. The choir created almost thirty original songs to add to their repertoire. There were many performances over the year as well as a new Quirkus film made by James Lockey and an exhibition of photographs by James Mulkeen that were exhibited in our gallery at The Point.
During lockdown, the Quirky Choir have collaborated with musician Charlie Banda to create a very special recording of ‘Sibemunye’. Meaning ‘we are one’, ‘Sibemunye’ was taught to the choir last year by Lucky Moyo, and has been adapted to include languages spoken by members of Doncaster Conversation Club. We hope you enjoy the song!
