It’s hard to imagine that we have been rehearsing on line for that long! But we have and we have achieved such a lot too. But as the restrictions under step 4 are lifted we will be able to sing again and together. So, week 67 will see us back as a choir. We will still be following our own mitigations because we want to keep our members safe. But, it will be lovely to see those who have not been online and to start to rebuild our choir. Thank you to everyone who has supported us! #WeRiseAgain
Over the past few weeks we have met and sung together, albeit in groups of 6! It’s not what we want, but we shall remain strong and connected with those who sing at home with us until we can be together as a full choir!
We have noticed so many inconsistencies with the guidance for choirs, but we are overjoyed for those who have found a way to get back singing and we remain positive that soon it will be us! Thank you to all our choir members, ladies circle, friends, patrons. supporters and our loyal audience.
We look forward to the day we can invite you all to hear us sing in concert!
Who would have thought that we would be holding our second AGM online and after 61 weeks of online rehearsals we are still connected and looking forward to being back together. We are rehearsing in groups of 6 at our venue and streaming to the rest of the choir, it’s not perfect, but we are doing our best! Next week we also get to meet some of our new members face to face for the first time! So, if like them you are tempted to join a choir, now is the time. Singing really is good for you…..if only everyone realised it!
Your nomination really counts. £1,000 could make a real difference in enabling the
choir to meet its overall charitable aims and objectives of extending its community involvement,
thereby benefitting the wider local community. We teach choral singing to develop our community
involvement, as singing is a pleasurable activity which reduces anxiety and can lessen feelings of
depression or loneliness. Your nomination could be the one that helps us win. Any award would be
used towards the costs of putting on a FREE ‘social freedom release’ concert to our community,
when government guidelines allow us to do so.

Thanks for your support!
The more nominations we get, the greater our chance of winning, so please spread the word.
We have kept our choir together online for over 12 months now, but as we move closer to restrictions being relaxed we are planning to return to live rehearsals in the not too distant future.
If you want to swap singing to yourself at home for singing with a choir and enjoying some wonderful harmonies and singing is something you have always wanted to try.
Why not make this year, the year that it happens. We would love to hear from both experienced and inexperienced singers alike. So if you think you would like to try – get in touch.
Email us at email@example.com or ring Richard Wade on 01484 548758 or text him on 07981 900192 it’s that simple.
We’ve been paid £81.20 by @easyuk Thanks to everyone who’s helped make a BIG difference during this difficult time by raising donations for us. If you’re not supporting Honley Male Voice Choir yet, please sign up now. It takes 2 minutes & 4,500+ shops will donate to us for free every time you shop with them!
Honley Male Voice Choir are delighted to announce multiyear funding of £1,000 for the next three years from the Thornton Family Fund, distributed by One Community to help towards our ongoing running costs.
Meirion Lewis – Chairman said “We are delighted to receive this generous award from One Community’s Thornton Family Fund. Like many ‘not-for-profit’ organisations, we have limited resources and are experiencing a severe impact on our usual income streams due to the current Covid-19 crisis.
At a time when funds for community groups and charitable organisations are becoming more difficult to access, we are incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference in Huddersfield and its environs.
This award will not only provide valuable support to the Choir, by contributing to the wellbeing, health and social life of the singing membership, but will also ensure ‘We Rise Again’ as lockdown restrictions are eased and we return to live rehearsals and performances.
Please continue to stay safe and take great care of yourselves and your loved ones”.
Thank you to the Co-op Local Community Fund and all of our supporters who have helped to raise £409.51 for the choir.
