When choosing a name for our choir, Tapalanote (you’re out of tune), we wanted to convey that we get together, not only to sing but also to laugh and have fun.

Trained by a professional choir master we currently have around fifty members, amateurs and professionals, hoping to discover and improve the use of our voices for a joint artistic project.

We have a very wide repertoire, ranging from pop to classic, gospel and jazz. Our music reflects who we are: a gay and lesbian choir committed to openness and tolerance.

In addition to our rehearsals, we also participate in concerts in Brussels and elsewhere allowing us to present the results of our hard work, experiences which our members really enjoy.

You can also join us on our Facebook page Tapalanote.


Depending on the number of places available, we are always happy to welcome new voices! Audtions are organised until mid-September. If needed, we also organize auditions in the month of January. But don't hesitate to contact us if you're interested! You will be put on a waiting list and will be contacted when the auditions are organised.
