On Saturday 20th May the combined forces of Honley Male Voice Choir, Grimethorpe Colliery Band and Lindley Junior School Choir raised the rooftops at Huddersfield Town Hall in aid of the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice. The concert organised by Brian Winterbottom celebrated his 50 years with the choir…..and in his own words it has been “a truly amazing journey!” Today, Brian and his wife Denise and choir Chairman Roger Wild were able to present a cheque to the hospice for am amazing £10,065! Well done to Brian and everyone who sponsored, supported, attended and performed!
We shall be promoting our next concert at the Kingsgate Centre, Huddersfield between 10.30 and 14.30 on Sunday 27th August 2017! So if you want to find out a little more about us – Honley Male Voice Choir or our Special Guest – Nicholas McCarthy – why not come along and have a chat with us!
We are Recruiting an Accompanist!
The renowned Honley Male Voice Choir, lead by theircharismatic Musical Director Steven Roberts, is looking to recruit an accompanist.
The successful applicant will be proficient on piano, keyboard and (ideally) organ and will be required to accompany the choir at both concerts and rehearsals.
Based in Armitage Bridge, Huddersfield at St. Paul’s Church the choir rehearses every Tuesday and occasional Friday evenings and performs in the region of 12 concerts each year, both locally and nationally and regularly appears at the prestigious Huddersfield Town Hall.
The choir’s repertoire covers a wide variety of music including popular, show and traditional choral items. If you would like the challenge of joining this happy and successful team apply, including your current CV, to our General Secretary, Mr. Graham Smith at 2 Upper Mills View, Meltham, Holmfirth, HD9 5AB or via our online contacts.
We are sad to announce that Jason Hawkins, our young virtuoso Accompanist is leaving us for pastures new.
He has decided to make a career change and get a real job! He is off to Carlisle to undertake Teacher training. He will be sadly missed by us here in the choir but we all wish him well for the future and thank him for his excellent services as our accompanist over the past three years.
Tomorrow’s setting will be the magnificent Huddersfield Town Hall where we will sing in a special celebratory concert. Hoping to raise £10,000 for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and celebrating Brian Winterbottom’s Fifty Years in the Choir the stage will be filled with glorious music.
Guests include Grimethorpe Colliery Band and Lindley Junior School Choir and a programme to delight all concert-goers has been put together by Brian.
The concert will start at 7.00 pm and tickets will be available from the Box Office prior to the concert.
