inTune Choir takes Cornwall by storm

Talented women from the Wadebridge area are taking Cornwall by storm as they use the power of their beautiful voices to make a difference in their community.


inTune Choir is led by Amy Sapwell, whose love for music and singing encouraged her to allow others to pursue this passion. In almost ten years, three choirs have emerged under Amy’s guidance, in Wadebridge, Chacewater and St Columb with around 50 women in each.

At the dawn of Covid-19, the choir had to overcome a number of challenges, from rehearsing online during the lockdowns, to social distancing and avoiding the virus in-person once restrictions had been lifted.


“We spent 18 months doing an online choir on Facebook Live,” Amy said. “Their support throughout the pandemic was amazing and the main focus when we returned to choir was supporting each other and getting to grips with singing together again. It took time but it now feels like we are finally back!”


inTune Choir can perform at a range of events and gatherings. The choir recently delivered a spellbinding performance at the Minack Theatre with 100 of their ladies, which contributed to raising £11,000 for Cornwall Air Ambulance. The funds were handed over at a cheque presentation during Helifest.


The beauty of inTune Choir is how it nurtures individual talents. Amy said: “It’s so nice seeing friendships and confidence blossom. It can be life changing because it challenges you, which results in an enormous sense of achievement.”


Christmas is one of the busiest times of year for inTune Choir, with carol services and singing in the street dominating their calendar in December.

The choir is expected to perform at Wadebridge Late Night Shopping and Padstow Christmas Festival. For other dates check their website or Facebook for more information.
