Skipton Choral Society

Sing with us

The choir has 60-70 members but roughly twice as many sopranos & altos as tenors & basses, and roughly twice as many basses as tenors. We are therefore especially keen to recruit tenors and basses to improve the musical balance of the choir.

“I like to bring a bit of humour to rehearsals,” said Robert Webb, musical director of Skipton Choral Society. “It’s about singing musically and singing as a group. It’s about that blended sound.”

Musical director Robert Webb said: “It’s important to have the right mix of voices to produce a blended sound, but with such a small minority of men, it can be difficult to get the sound well-balanced.”

Membership secretary Liz Graham added: “We’re a friendly, non-auditioning choir, and we need more men to come and sing with us, so we’re making a special appeal to men: Come and join us, even if you’ve not sung before. No previous experience necessary – a willingness to learn and a joy of singing is all you need. Tenors especially welcome – and that includes women who sing tenor.”

Anyone interested can join rehearsals at 7pm on Mondays in Holy Trinity Church, Skipton, or contact Liz on membership@skiptonchoralsociety.com
