WHO WE ARE
We are a choir of women and men who offer the chance to sing European classical music, even if you have little experience of it. 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 go through an 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.
Aiden Bradley was our Musical Director for six years until June 2019. Matthew Quinn took over as Our Musical Director from September 2019 but now he’s got a job with the BBC in Belfast we’re looking for a replacement from May 2020. See the page Musical Director recruitment for details of what we’re looking for and how to apply.
Richard Brocklehurst is Our Accompanist. In addition students and graduates from the Royal Northern College of Music regularly perform with us.
We first formed in 1985 from members of the Friends of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, although we are no longer associated with the orchestra.
WHAT WE DO
We present regular concerts of choral music at St Paul’s, and sometimes elsewhere around Manchester.
