About Vocalise

A community choir based in Blackburn, Lancashire. We welcome anyone who simply enjoys singing.

Vocalise is our Youth Choir.

Under the leadership of our musical directors, Matthew Thomas and Jeff Borradaile, we sing an exciting range of songs, all a cappella. No audition!

Our choir is supported by Blackburn People’s Choir and friends and there is no charge for members. We meet every Thursday 5.30pm – 6.30pm.

Vocalise is sponsored by Blackburn with Darwen Arts Council, The John Laing Charitable Trust Fund, and The Young Weavers.
