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 and accompanist Michelle Sutcliffe, 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!

Honley Still Needs You!

Kitchener_11_LORES.jpgHonley Male Voice Choir has performed some spectaclular concerts over the past 12 months (See Concert And Events page and 6 potential singing members have joined in January this year. 2015 looks to be another special year as we look ahead, and we may even decide to make a recording for general release.

However we still want to improve the tone and volume of the choir and therefore there will be a number of recruiting events throughout the year. The first one will be on

February 20th 2015  7. 15pm and will be an Open Singing Concert at Holmfirth Civic Hall.

OR...Come along any Tuesday to Rehearsal.

There are many great singers out there who are just yearning to have a go and now is the best time to do it with so many other new members and learning a new programme from scratch.  You dont need to be able to read music, just want to sing (everyone can!). So come on, take the plunge and have a go. We'll see you on 20th at Holmsfirth. For more information about the Choir and Joining Us, go to the Joining the choir page.
