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 members. Under the direction of our MD Steven Roberts, deputy MD Michelle Sutcliffe and accompanist Jason Hawkins. 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?

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!

Next Concerts:

Honley MVC's next concert is at Penistone Paramount on 21st May. See Poster ->

Ably supported by Organist Kevin Grunill, it will be a night of your favourite songs from traditional, showtuners and modern classics. Something for everyone. Tickets £8 from Penistone Paramount box office or on the door.

Honley's New CD 'Voices in Harmony'

Honley Male Voice Choir has produced a new CD to commemorate their 80th Anniversary next year. The CD is a collection of favourite songs from their current repertoire. ‘Voices in Harmony’ is the fifth the Choir have recorded over the years following on after ‘Deep Harmony’, ’Hymns with Honley’, ‘50 Golden Years’ and ‘The Pride and the Passion’ with the Band of the Royal Marines. This would make an ideal gift for Christmas.   

The recording includes many of your favourite traditional, modern and show songs such as:

Llanfair, Love Changes Everything, The Water of Tyne I Dreamed a Dream, Another Day,The Lost Chord, The Rose, Psalm 126, Benedictus, The White Rose, Can You feel the Love Tonight, Portrait of my Love, How to Handle a Woman, Amen and Deep Harmony

The recordings were made over two weekends in June. It's hard work doing an all day recording session to ensure the content is the best it can be!  Our thanks to Honley Ladies Circle for sponsoring the recordings which are dedicated to Choir Members, David Jagger, Bob Smith and Tony Farrington, who sadly passed away during the time these recordings were made and published.
