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.
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 Male Voice Choir’s popular and well-loved organist and deputy piano accompanist George Marsden has decided to retire after nearly forty-one years loyal service. His farewell co-incides with his 80th birthday which falls on St.Valentine’s Day, Saturday February 14. And to mark both events the the choir is honouring George with a special party to which all choir members, wives, partners and guests are invited. A presentation will be made to George at the party on Friday, February 13 at the Meltham sports and social club in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the life of the choir which he joined in August, 1974.

We wish George all the best for the future in his retirement and thank him with much admiration and appreciation for his unswerving service over the years. Whilst he is not leaving the choir his accompanyment will be sorely missed.
