Open Singing Day

We are holding an open singing day on Saturday 1st September  from 9.45 until 5.00 at:

Birkenshaw Methodist Church, 581 Bradford Road, Birkenshaw, Bradford, BD11 2AQ

We will be singing a selection of items from our past repertoire with some new items we hope to be singing over the next season.

If you would like to join us please contact us via the contacts page to let us know so that we can arrange enough sheet music for the day. Please note there is an expectation that you can read music and have some experience of singing in 4 parts.

Refreshments will be provided but please bring your own lunch. There is no car park at the venue but there is plenty of roadside parking.

If, after the singing day, you are interested in singing with us regularly we will organise an audition for you with our Musical Director Charles Rhodes. We currently have vacancies for new singers, especially in the alto and tenor sections. We normally rehearse in Shipley on Monday evenings.

Barbara’s last concert


Our concert on Friday 7th July was our last with Barbara Bancroft directing the choir. Barbara has been our conductor since 2009 when she took over from Doreen Anderson. Before that she sang alto with the Aire Valley Singers since the early 1980s. Charlie Rhodes will be our new conductor from September.
