Honley Male Voice Choir, one of the top male voice choirs in Yorkshire
Honley Male Voice Choir goes from strength to strength performing a variety of Male Voice music primarily to entertain and enjoy high standards of singing from the 60+ members. Under the direction of our MD Steven Roberts and accomanyist Michelle Sutcliffe, we regularly perform top class concerts within Huddersfield Town Hall and often with world renowned performers like Lesley Garrett and Cory Brass Band or other top Bands. We take part in many fund raisng events and are pleased to support local charities. To finds out more about us, go to the About Us Page.
We’re forging ahead with our next concert in September which will commemorate the lives and sacrifices of those who fought in the First World War. The concert looks to be something rather special with Massed Voices from 4 separate choirs. Honley will be supported by all of Steven Roberts other choirs, Altrincham Choral Society, Chesterfield Philharmonic Choir and Sing and Discover.
The concept of the concert has been developed in conjunction with local Civic Societies historians and the Royal British Legion and will be a fitting tribute to those who strived during the WWI conflict
The programme will include Local Stories and multimedia images of the lives of people from Honley backed by Honley Civic Society and the British Legion. With Tunes from the Trenches and other WW1 Songs the concert culminates with Wherever You Are (Paul Mealor, as sung by Military Wives) and The Choral Suite from “The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace” (Jenkins).
Our accompanyist for the evening will be renowed organist Jonathan Scott
With more than 280 singers on stage and a uniformed presence, this promises to be a spectacular and epic event and well worth seeing. Tickets outside of the choir can be obtained through Kirklees Town Halls Website and are priced £5 – £14 with Group discounts available.
Honley men are proud to support local Charities and recently presented a cheque for £788 punds to Yorkshire Cancer Research from the procedes of programme sales for our concert with Lesley Garrett
Did you know belting out the chorus of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody is good for your health?
Don’t worry if you can’t hold a tune, scientists made a discovery which says chanting the hallelujahs of the 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 also 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. Of course, Honley DO hope members CAN hold a tune but the ability to read music is not essential. Join Us - see below!
