More About Us

This small group of dedicated young singers quickly became renowned across the North of England for the high standard of their performances. As their fame spread, so did the locations of their concerts. In 1956 the choir found themselves on their first, of what would become many, trips abroad. Although in more recent years the choir have not embarked upon foreign tours but have  had many successful tours in the UK, which included performances at the London South Bank Centre and Covent Garden's St. Pauls Church as well as  amazing performances in Edinburgh Cathedral, both the Liverpool Anglican and Metropolitan Cathedrals, Manchester Cathedral, Newcastle and Durham Cathedrals. Their most recent trip was a return visit to the Island of Jersey in the summer of 2018. This was a wonderful experience where we received a great reception by all of our Jersey hosts. The tour culminated in a joint concert with Jersey's own female community choir The Hot Bananas, which was a truly magical evening. (The picture below shows both choirs at the end of the concert after their final joint number).


The choir recorded two new CDs in 2017, Christmas Joy and a Celebration of Song with some of our favourite songs included.
