About

Every Voice Community Choir a dementia friendly community singing group led by Bryan Marshall and run in association with Alzheimer Scotland. Singers meet fortnightly in Dumbarton on a Wednesday afternoon. The choir is open to anyone within the local community who wants to sing with others. Formed in 2016, Every Voice Community Choir boasts over 70 members, all coming together to enjoy each others company and sing!

It is a mixed-voice choir that is open to people of all ages, and new members are always welcome. The choir sing a wide ranging repertoire of songs from Burns to Beatles, and all the songs are taught by ear with lyric sheets provided – some songs are accompanied by piano or guitar and some are sang a cappella. The choir hold two annual concerts for family and friends, one in June and one in December.

EVCC meet fortnightly on a Wednesday afternoon from 1pm to 2:30pm, including a 20 minute tea break, when the fabulous volunteers provide tea, coffee, biscuits and if the choir have sung sung well, cake! Membership is free and the choir is financially supported by members of the choir as part of our own group, The Purple Fundraising Club!

There is a huge amount of support and friendship from everyone in the choir, every voice matters!
