Langcliffe Singers is a choir based in Settle in the Yorkshire Dales which welcomes anyone who wants to sing choral repertoire. All you need are enthusiasm and commitment and if you would like to join us there is no audition and you do not have to be able to read music.
We are a registered charity and raise money for our music-making through ticket sales, choir membership fees and events, as described on the Fund-raising Activities page.
The choir is divided into four voices – soprano, alto, tenor and bass. If you’re not sure which voice you are, come along anyway and our Musical Director will help you to find your correct place in the choir. Our numbers vary but we usually have between 40 and 50 members.
We rehearse on Tuesday evenings. For further details see Rehearsals and How to Find Us.
We pride ourselves on having a very varied repertoire, ranging from songs from the shows to Brahms’ Requiem. We give three concerts a year, the summer concert normally consisting of lighter music and we regularly organise Come & Sing events when singers from all over the Craven area and beyond are invited to join us – see the Fund-Raising Activities page.
We often perform with other musicians such as organists, brass players and percussionists and every so often will be accompanied by a full orchestra, our particular favourite of course being Settle orchestra .
