The niche Tuneless Choir is described as being for those who “lack the ability, confidence or practice to sing in tune”.

The outgoing leader, Richie Alexander, said: “I will really miss Tuneless Choir but the opportunities I’ve been offered in Spain are too good to turn down.”

Becky Power, who manages the choir, said: “Richie has promised us that he’s not leaving because our singing is too bad. He spent many years living over (in Spain) with his family, they have a house, and he has been offered a great job.”

She is happy to continue to do all the organisation required to run the choir, meaning a new leader can solely focus on the music.

Finding a new leader is paramount in keeping this friendly choir going, as it has a lively group of members who would be distraught if it had to close.

One such member, Linda, said: “I love Tuneless Choir. It’s the highlight of my week. I can go feeling tired and stressed and after belting out the songs and laughing along with so many lovely like-minded people who now feel like friends, I go home feeling so happy and uplifted.”

Anyone interested in this rewarding opportunity to lead the choir can email bernie.bracha@tunelesschoir.com for more information.

The choir was set up in March and runs every Wednesday except the first in the month, in the church hall at the rear of The White Church (St Peter’s) on Warmsworth Road from 7.45pm to 9pm.
