We are an adult choir who stage three choral concerts a year of European classical music. This means that much of it is in the Christian tradition. However, we are not a religious choir. We rehearse and perform in a church because it’s a good space to sing in. We are open to singers of all beliefs and none.

So, if you’d like to have a go at choral music ranging from the 16th to the 20th century, just turn up and try it out; we won’t ask you to audition. What matters is that you want to sing and will commit yourself to rehearsals most weeks at 7:30pm on Tuesdays in St Paul’s Church, Wilmslow Road, Withington M20 4AW. 

Have a look at our Join Us section of the website.  Read more about being in the choir in the Our Voices section.

Clara Rundell is Our Musical Director .

Richard Brocklehurst is Our Accompanist.

Our History

The choir first formed in 1985 from members of the Friends of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, although we are no longer associated with the orchestra.
