Welcome to Honley Male Voice Choir Website.

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

A Year with Steve Roberts

The choir has moved forward with confidence under our Musical Director, Steven Roberts and we expect an even more exciting future as Steven brings a wide range of choral experience and shares the choir’s objectives of ‘excellence in male voice singing and good fellowship’. A year in which the choir has grown by 12 new members and rebuilding a repertoire to include both the modern and the traditional. A year which has seen collaboration with world class Youth Choirs and Brass Bands and an increase in demand for social perfermances and weddings, as well as concerts. We look forward to a packed calendar in 2014 where we take the choir to the next level and especially with our concert/show with Lesley Garrett.

If you want to learn more about Steve look in the 'About Us' section of our website and if you require any more information or wish to contact us please use the choir’s email address info@honleymvc.co.uk or via 'Contact Us'

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 - see below!
