The Society was formed over 30 years ago from the previous Overdale Singers and we currently 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 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.
A new venture for us the a Singing Day on Saturday March 10th 2018 and further details are given on the 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.
