Welcome to the website of the Downley Descants
Downley Descants was set up in 2012 as a community choir serving the village of Downley and the surrounding area. We perform on several occasions throughout the year including an annual Christmas Concert, Downley Day and the Downley Up! festival. Since we started we have raised over £11000 for good causes including Motor Neurone Disease Assoc, South Bucks Hospice, Social Link, Karen’s Big Smiles, Rennie Grove Hospice, Wycombe Homeless Connection, T V Air Ambulance, Child Bereavement UK, PACT, Alzheimers Society, Padstones, Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis, Cakes 4 Casualties, PACE, Wycombe Rent Deposit Scheme, Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Youth Enquiry Service, Wycombe Shopmobility and National Autistic Society South Bucks.
We meet most Thursdays during school term times at 8pm at Sunnybank Church, Moor Lane, Downley, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, HP13 5YP. Check the calendar page for details.
There are no auditions nor is there a requirement to read music. You must, however, enjoy singing and a convivial social atmosphere. Our meetings are fun but we work hard towards our performances at various concerts throughout the year, striving to achieve the best we can and to keep improving.
Why not come along and give us a try for two weeks then decide if the choir is for you. We are always looking for new members to join us. No auditions are needed. Please contact us if you are interested.
