Currently we have more than 60 members; some new and some very experienced, but all sharing their love of choral singing.
In our weekly rehearsals, we prepare for three concerts per year, including our popular Christmas concert at Marple Methodist Church and we perform works from a wide range of classical repertoire some of which can be found on the Concert History link. We have a lot of fun and laughter and anyone is welcome to come to rehearsals to see what we do!
We are regularly accompanied by Stockport Symphony Orchestra and on other occasions by some notable local organists and our own talented regular accompanist, James Pelham. Experienced soloists enhance our performances and concerts with orchestral accompaniment are usually given at Norbury Parish Church in Hazel Grove.
Our new venture, a Singing Day was held on Saturday March 10th 2018 at Norbury Parish Church and it was a great success. The works studied were Mozart’s Coronation Mass and Lux Aeterna by Morten Lauridsen and the day was so enjoyable that another one is planned for 2019.
Watch this space but also check our future concerts page!
Sadly, one of our longest-serving members, since 1974, Margaret Bryant, died on 26th May 2017. Margaret worked tirelessly for various causes but she loved her choir and served on the committee as Publicity Officer for several years.She will be greatly missed and the choir were privileged to sing at the service to celebrate her life at St George’s, New Mills with the beautiful Ave Verum by Mozart and we are sure that she would have approved.
