Honley Male Voice Choir, one of the top male voice choirs in Yorkshire

Honley Male Voice Choir is based in Honley near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire and performs a variety of Male Voice music primarily to entertain and to enjoy high standards of singing from the members. Under the direction of our MD Steven Roberts, we regularly perform top class concerts within Huddersfield Town Hall and often with world renowned performers like Lesley Garrett, Cory or Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Brass Bands or other top bands and artists. We take part in many fund raising events  supporting local charities. To find out more about us, go to the About Us Page.

Hallelujah! Singing in a choir is as good for your heart and your head! 

Did you know belting out the chorus of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is good for your health?

Scientists discoved that chanting the 'hallelujahs' of a No.1 hit can be as good for the heart as a yoga session!  That’s because singing helps us to control our breathing and regulate our heart beat and pulse. Doctors have confirmed that singing is good for the brain and helps ward off Dementia and related conditions. And, while singing alone is good, singing in a choir is even better, research shows.  

HonleyMVC are always on the look-out for new singers and the ability to read music is not essential. Do come and Join Us!

Celebrating 50 Years in the choir with a Gala Concert for Charity

BW_ForgetMeNot_Presentation-5.jpgTriumphant Choir member Brian Winterbottom holds aloft a cheque for £10,065  as proceeds from a Gala concert with Honley Male Voice Choir,  Grimethorpe Colliery Band (Brassed Off fame) and award winning Lindley School Children's Choir in celebration of 50 Years with the choir and the culmination of 2 years hard work in assuring the fundraising.

The cheque was presented to Huddersfield's Forget-Me-Not Children's Hospice, Lynsey Marshall, on 9th September 2017.

The choir has always supported local charites and has a long standing relationship with Forget-me-not and has a 'brick in the wall' within the Hospice which says, "Sweet is the Work", the first line line of the choirs remembrance anthem to those who have gone before. In the photo below Brian and Denise Winterbottom with Choir Chairman Roger Wild present the cheque.

Jason Hawkins Leaving us

Jason_Playing_lores-5.jpgWe 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.

Good Luck!
