All our activities have been paused during the pandemic and members are only rehearsing online – three sessions a month, on a Sunday afternoon, and two Monday evenings. We expect to continue as a ‘virtual only’ choir until at least the end of December 2020 – announcements about resuming our physical meetings for the academic year 2020-21 will be made as the situation becomes clearer.
New members are still welcome to join our online sessions though, but if you are interested in doing so, please discuss this with our membership secretary first, using the form below. For new members joining for the autumn term (September – December 2020), subscriptions have been reduced to half price, and will be £17.50 (for people on average income or above), £13.50 (for people on low income) or £8 (for people on very low income). Instructions (and cost) for continuing your membership into 2021 will be given later.
For existing members, your membership has been extended, at no charge, to the end of December 2020. You do not need to complete a new registration form but please inform us of any changes to your details since you last registered – please use the form at the foot of this page. An announcement about registering for January to July 2021 will be made nearer the time.

As usual we welcome everyone who likes to sing for the joy of it, whether you are an experienced singer or have never sung with others before. Our calendar shows up-to-date details of rehearsals and all other activities. When it is safe to do so we will return to our normal rehearsal venue – Didsbury Baptist Church, in Didsbury, Manchester M20 6SX.
If you’re not sure about joining, you’re welcome to a free taster session at any rehearsal.
The choir has high standards but we learn and sing in a respectful, enjoyable and good-humoured environment. Although we use a chapel for our rehearsals we have no connection with any political parties or religious denominations. Our songs come from all around the world, and are sung in lovely rich four part harmonies.
