Holme Valley Singers have been singing together for pleasure since 1975. The Choir is held in high esteem in music circles in the area. It has to its credit, successes in the Sainsbury, Blackpool, Freckleton, Morecambe, Peterborough, North Wales Festivals and nearer to home, the Mrs Sunderland competition. The Choir has also taken part in the BBC Daily Service and, on an exchange visit to Belgium, enjoyed singing in Bruges Cathedral. It is has also enjoyed concert trips to France and Italy.
The Choir has around 40 members and rehearses once a week at Holmfirth High School during school term time, on Tuesday evenings 7pm to 9pm. It always encourages anyone interested in joining, to sing with them for a four week trial. However, there may be a waiting list at times.
Commitment is more important to the Choir than sight reading ability!
