Choir History. On the 20th May1944 a small Rugby Home Guard contingent, conducted by Major Chaplain, sang eight items at a concert held in the Co-operative Hall, Rugby and the Home Guard Choir was born. The fine voices of those early singers inspired certain gentlemen serving with the local Civil Defence detachment who asked to join the choir. In 1945 the choir expanded by including these men and became known as "The Rugby Home Guard and Civil Defence Choir". Since then the Choir has been further re-named Rugby Male Voice Choir. The presidency of the choir is held by Mayor of Rugby which allows us to incorporate the Rugby borough armorial bearings in our choir badge. Rugby Male Voice Choir is working hard to maintain the tradition of male voice choral singing in Rugby and the local area.
