Skipton Choral Society is a mixed choir of around 60 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 Christ Church, Skipton 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 out more about joining us.
Spring term’s rehearsals start from January 8th 2024. Rehearsals are in the main body of the church to allow for plenty of ventilation. Hand sanitiser will be available on entry.
We will be performing our next concert on Saturday 11th May, 2024 at 7.30pm in the Priory Church, Bolton Abbey. The programme includes Purcell’s Funeral Music for Queen Mary, Brahms’ Geistliches Lied, Rutter’s Winchester Te Deum, Chilcott’s Gloria and Parry’s Blest Pair of Sirens. The Bolton Priory website’s Events page will have booking details in the near future.
