Puccini's Messa di Gloria and other works.  Holmfirth Civic Hall, 7.15pm 

Holmfirth Choral Society is a mixed-voice choir of good quality, based in the popular and picturesque 'Last of the Summer Wine' village of Holmfirth, near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England.

Rehearsals are again held on Thursday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.15pm in HOLMFIRTH METHODIST CHURCH Huddersfield Road, Holmfirth, now that we are no longer prevented by Covid restrictions (although we still maintain health precautions, including ventilation).

We usually have a break from rehearsals from mid-July to late August or early Sept. and often skip a rehearsal at bank holiday times (please check). If coming by car to rehearsals, the large 'Crown Bottom' public car park (near the Co-op supermarket) adjoins the Methodist Church 

Founded in the 1930s, the Society normally performs several concerts each year in the Holmfirth area. There are at present about 60 singing members. 

Our performances in recent years include Orff's "Carmina Burana"; Vivaldi's "Gloria", Haydn's "Creation", various other masses and sacred pieces.

In the summer months, we often perform programmes of a 'lighter' nature and we are asked to sing in charity concerts (etc.) at various times.

We are continually gaining excellent new members of all ages and in all parts, many of whom initially made contact following visits to this website - so if you are interested in singing with us please don't hesitate to make contact - or just come along one Thursday evening.

The usual procedure is to come along and rehearse with us a few times on Thursday evenings before making up your mind whether you want to join. There is normally no formal audition and the membership fee is very modest (we welcome new members and don't want to deter any potential new singers).
