Rainbow Voices is a combined group of individuals who are united by their love of song. Established in 1995, we are the leading Midlands based Community Choir for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans people and their friends. We are a diverse and mixed voice choir who provide a safe environment for friends to meet and sing together.
We have approximately 40 singing members and are split into a range of 4 different voices; Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass. The choir has a broad repertoire and we sing a wide variety of music. We cover songs from the rock, pop, classical, folk and musical theatre genres.
We are headed up by our double award winning Musical Director, Emma Wilkinson-Clark. Emma has been in choir for a number years and after completing Sing for Pleasure Conducting Training, she became our MD in 2010. Emma started her musical career playing the trumpet, keyboard and singing. After obtaining a Degree in Music, Emma went on to do specialist training in Music Education. She has 20 years’ experience within Mainstream and Special Education across Primary and Secondary Settings. She is a former Music Teacher and an experienced Head of Music.
Emma has also enjoyed singing in a variety of Ensembles, as well as leading events. More recently and as part of her work for Services for Education, Emma was asked to lead and conduct performances at Birmingham Symphony Hall as Musical Director of the West Midlands Dementia Choir. Somehow, Emma also finds time to lead a small community choir based in Castle Vale called ‘Generations’.
We were lucky enough to perform live on stage with 60’s icon Lulu, as part of her European Tour. We were also part of the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony - the official handover event from Australia to England which was televised to billions worldwide.
So that’s a little bit about us!
