The choir was founded in 1997 by John Smith but following his retirement in 2017, we began again under the baton of Paul Harris, a local organist who in earlier days was the youngest choir master in the Bradford diocese. Our pianist is Sue Watkiss, a professional musician from Skipton.
We are a small choir of around 24 voices but we have been complimented on the quality of our singing and the lovely harmonies we produce. We sing an eclectic mixture of songs, the usual male voice choir favourites such as Rachie, and more modern items such as Do You Hear the People Sing? from Les Misérables.
We present eight concerts each year, entertaining local audiences in and around Keighley, and supporting local charities. Manorlands is a favourite but others include Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Dementia Keighley and Friends of Airedale Hospital.
Most of all, we enjoy our singing and would love to welcome new members. We practice each Tuesday evening in Trinity Church, Fell Lane. Anyone interested in joining us should contact Paul Harris on 07504 128275.
