We are a well established ladies choir, based in the town of Barnsley, South Yorkshire. We sing in three-part harmony, soprano, mezzo-soprano and contralto and our repertoire includes a wide range of pieces including songs from the shows, traditional tunes, as well as modern. We can perform as a standalone choir, or with other singers or bands. We are looking forward to performing several concerts this year and are well into rehearsing for these. We were recently invited to sing at Barnsley Hospital for the Tiny Hearts Celebration event. and received a lovely letter from the Chairman Mr T Lake, giving the following lovely comments;
‘I just wanted to drop you a personal note on behalf of the Charity of Barnsley Hospital Foundation Trust to thank you and your colleagues for helping us out at such short notice with the celebration event for our Tiny Hearts Appeal.
……. everyone ..who attended the event, were absolutely mesmerised by the outstanding performance of your choir !
There has clearly been a huge amount of effort, dedication and commitment put into delivering a high quality performance and I wanted to express both our gratitude and pleasure at being able to hear your Choir sing so beautifully – you made us all feel proud.’

We are always happy for new singers to come and join us so please get in contact.
