Skipton Choral Society is a mixed choir of 60-70 singers and is open to anyone who enjoys singing. We cover a wide range of types of music, mainly traditional but also some more innovative pieces, and our members vary in musical skills. A basic ability to read music is all that’s needed. The choir has been running since 2013 and whilst it is based in Skipton, membership comes from many of the surrounding towns and villages. We are a friendly group of singers and welcome new members. We meet on Monday evenings in Holy Trinity Church, Skipton High Street and start at 7.00pm and finish at 9.00pm. Our year runs from September to July and we perform three major concerts each year as well as occasional public engagements such as Carolling. Follow the “Sing with us” link to find our more about joining us.
In-person rehearsals resumed from Monday 6th September 2021. Rehearsals are in the main body of the church to allow for plenty of ventilation. Please arrive between 6.30pm and 7.00pm so we can enter through the main door without any crowding on the way in. Bring a mask for when we are moving around and not singing. Hand sanitiser will be available on entry.
We plan to perform our next concert on Saturday 4th December 2021 in Christ Church, Skipton at 7.30pm. This will be a performance of parts of Handel’s Messiah and a selection of carols.
