Welcome to Penistone Ladies Choir!

Penistone Ladies Choir was formed in 1986 in the market town of Penistone, on the south-eastern edge of the Pennines in South Yorkshire. 

Under the leadership of our Musical Director, Jane Hobson, we have grown over the past year to over 50 members. We enjoy singing a wide repertoire of songs from classical, religious, folk and contemporary styles, all ably accompanied by Yvonne Woffenden, the Choir's accompanist of many years.

We rehearse every Monday evening from 7.45 pm to 9.45 pm at St John's Community Centre, Penistone.  We enjoy a busy schedule of rehearsals, concerts, fundraisers, and the occasional competition. If you'd like to sing with us, come along on any Monday evening to join in or just listen. 

We've enjoyed considerable success in festivals recently, winning three third places in April, at this year's National Choir Day at the Eskdale Festival of the Arts in Whitby.  Last year in September, we won the Jack Jubb Memorial Trophy at the Penistone Competitive Music Festival, and achieved success at the Biddulph and Moorlands 51st Music Festival in the Choral Recital class.  We'd like to thank our musical director, Jane Hobson, and our accompanist, Yvonne Woffenden for their committment... Thanks also to the stiff opposition for making us work so hard!

Please contact us if you would like to book us to sing for you....

What's next?

We have had a strong programme of concerts this season, but now have only 1 left before we break for the month of August...

In April, we travelled to Whitby and took part in the National Choir Day (part of the Eskdale Festival of the Arts)  We entered 3 classes "Ladies Choir"; "Sacred Music" & "Choir Recital" and were delighted and excited to win a hat trick of 3rd place in all three classes.  

Another first this year has been the recording of our first CD - grest fun and we're hugely proud of the result. See below for how to get your copy....

And don't forget our fundraising / social event in July - a flower arranging demo, washed down with a glass of wine!  You don't have to be a choir member to come and enjoy this event - tickets only £7.50

We're now looking ahead to the next season - what we will be singing in the run up to Christmas and longer term we are planning to go further afield to sing with other choirs!
