The Birmingham Icknield Male Voice Choir started in 1900, originally as the ‘Icknield Street Early Morning Adult School Male Voice Choir’ – forming out of adult education classes at the turn of the 20th Century offered by the Icknield School in Hockley.
Surviving two World Wars, and lasting over 11 decades, our 40 man strong choir has had an extremely successful history. Notable moments have included sharing the stage with international star Shirley Bassey in Cardiff, winning accolades at UK music festivals, and holding a centenary concert at the Symphony Hall in 2000.
2007 also saw Birmingham’s Lord Mayor present the city’s coat of arms to us in recognition of our proud history and long links with Birmingham.
Over our 116 year history, we have performed hundreds of concerts, and have donated thousands of pounds to charity. Funds from each annual concert have gone to support a whole variety of local names such as John Taylor Hospice, St Basil’s and in 2015, The Midlands Air Ambulance.
