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!

Honley recording for a CD

Honley Male Voice Choir have decided to cut a CD of all their best and most recent songs. This has been done over two sessions with a professional recording company in St Pauls Church, Armitage Bridge, Huddersfield. It's been some time since the choir's last recorded and we wanted to update our repertoire to reflect our current programmes. 

The recordings were be done over two weekends in June. Its hard work doing an all day recording session to ensure the content is the best it can be!  Watch this space for further information when the recording will be availabe.
