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 Christ Church, Skipton and start at 7.15pm and finish at 9.15pm. 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 and this term’s started from September 5th 2022. Rehearsals are in the main body of the church to allow for plenty of ventilation. Hand sanitiser will be available on entry.
Following a successful, and welcome, resumption of our concert performances in 2021-22 we will be performing a special arrangement of Mozart’s Requiem Mass this December. We will be performing accompanied by York Railway Institute Brass Band in a specially written version of this classic work. There will be two performances, one on 3rd December in Skipton Town Hall (tickets here) and the second in Selby Abbey on 10th December (tickets here). Both performances will have a 7.30pm start time. Although not guaranteed, we hope to have tickets available on the door on a first-come-first-served basis, so arrive early if you haven’t had time to book your ticket in advance.
