Barton Music Makers

Nine years on

We are a charitable group that provides
- a community choir known as The Bar-Tones
- musical events raising funds for charity

Community Choir - The Bar-Tones has become a very well-established community choir, offering opportunities for enthusiastic novices and experienced singers to work together and enjoy the pleasure and sense of well-being that singing in a group can bring.  Regular Christmas concerts and several Summer Shows have showcased the choral talents and wide repertoire which have developed over the first five years. We don’t require auditions to join. For further details of the choir click here Community Choir.

Musical events such as our Christmas concert have helped us raise an outstanding sum in excess of £20,500 for charities and provide bursaries for the three local schools in Barton under Needwood. Visit our charitable giving page to see all the details.

Unfortunately theatre visits are no longer arranged because of rising costs of transport and agent ticketing arrangements.

Due to the initial generosity of our 68 Founder Members who donated a total of £1085.00 the dream became a reality and has enabled the very low annual membership of £15.00 to remain unchanged for the past eight years. To quote one of our members “one of the best investments I ever made”
