Formed in early 2013 by musician and choir leader Dominic Stichbury, Chaps Choir is made up of writers, filmmakers, lawyers, office bods, teachers, doctors, musicians and everyone else in between. Say goodbye to the traditional male voice mould and with it danny boy, green valleys and Abba medleys. The Chaps sing songs from across the world, combining surprising choices with deft arrangements, always with an added chappist twist. Prepare for snowy hunting calls, Manhattanite observations, self-aware pirates and, well, lots of men singing. The choir has rapidly become a place for men to convene in ways that contrast with typical male socialising.
