What is it?
An excellent question - ChoirCast is a friendly virtual choir with members from across the world, welcoming singers of any ability, and covering a wide range of popular music genres. We produce monthly video collaborations of the songs we work on. If you want to know more, keep reading!
Broadcasting a choir across the world...
Who are we?
ChoirCast is run by its founder, Eliza Fyfe, a professional singing teacher and choir leader based in Bristol in the UK. Also on the team are Martin Elsbury, our video editor, and Kristian Bressington, our sound producer. We also have a host of musicians with whom we regularly collaborate on our monthly choir music videos. The choir itself is currently comprised of around 40 members from across the globe.

Who are you?
Well, that’s really an existential question. But for the purposes of ChoirCast, you could be anyone: you can be of any singing ability, you can be based anywhere in the world, and you can put as little or as much time into it as you’re able to. All that’s needed is a love of singing, a desire to meet others from across the world, and an internet connection – if you meet those criteria, we would love to have you on board!
What do I get out of it?
ChoirCast isn’t just about singing your favourite songs in your living room (although it is about that). We want ChoirCast to be as good as a virtual choir can possibly be, and we work hard to make that happen. Being a member of our choir means choir tuition every week, custom arrangements to suit your voice, extra resources to help you through the songs, and participation in monthly music videos produced by professional editors and musicians. ChoirCast is also a great way to meet people from all over the world, and the choir are active socially outside of the tuition sessions.
How do I get involved?
ChoirCast runs weekly rehearsal sessions on Mondays at 7:30pm UK time, working towards a music video every month showcasing our latest song. Each month we begin a new song, so there’s no long-term commitment. In order to participate, you need a stable internet connection, two internet-connected devices, and some earphones – that’s it.
