As a choir we love our weekly get together learning new songs and singing our hearts out, but we also love to perform to an audience and demonstrate the wonderful results of all our hard work.
Due to the current situation with the Corona Virus, we have been unable to meet as usual, instead we have been embracing new technology and meetings through Zoom. We have also created a number of virtual videos which can be seen on our Facebook page.
Each year we enter The Wensleydale Tournament of Song, in both competitive and non-competitive categories. It is a great experience and we love to hear the judges feedback which has always been very positive and encouraging.
The Yorkshire Dales is often host to great sporting events and we have regularly performed for crowds at events such as the UCI world cycling championships and the Tour de Yorkshire. It is very exciting to be part of such important events and we were very proud to be a Yorkshire Choir!
We love to travel as a choir finding new opportunities to compete in competitions & festivals as well as attending workshops where we can learn and grow. We thoroughly enjoyed the UK choir festival which we attended last year, as well as the Manchester Amateur Choral competition which we competed in. It was wonderful to be amongst such talented choirs from around the country. It was a truly rewarding and interesting experience and we hope to attend again in the future.
We have also performed at a number of local weddings and other private events. It is always a delight to be a part of such a special day and it is lovely to see so many people enjoying our music and dancing along.
Every year we organise and perform our own concert, raising money for many local charities close to our hearts. Last year we held our biggest concert yet, with hundreds of people coming along to see us.. we raised almost £2000 for the charities MacMillan and the Swaledale Mountain Rescue team.
You can see some of our most recent performances on YouTube.
Here is a list of our upcoming public performances, please do come along and watch.
All concerts for the remainder of this 2020 have unfortunately been cancelled.
