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 rapidly 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, with the occasional competition and trip away.  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 a second and third place at the Huddersfield Mrs Sunderland Festival in February 2017, and also a second and a third at the recent Eskdale Festival in Whitby.  Last November (2016) we won two first places in the Colne Luther Greenwood Memorial Festival and will return this year to try to retain the cups we won!  Previous to those, we achieved success at the Penistone, and the Biddulph and Moorlands Music Festivals. 

We'd like to thank our musical director, Jane Hobson, and our accompanist, Yvonne Woffenden for their never ending enthusiasm and 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 just celebrated our 30th year and so we have had a very exciting year with concerts, competitions, socials, trips away....competition highlights were being placed in first position in two classes at the Colne Luther Greenwood Festival of Music, and second and third at two other competitions we entered this year in Huddersfield & Whitby. 

June was a full-on month....firstly singing in a performance of Vivaldi's "Gloria" with Skelmanthorpe MVC, then the following weekend we had a fantastic 3 day trip South to Marlborough & Cirencester to sing together with several other choirs, The Bluebelles, The Blue NotEs, Cirencester Male Voice Choir, & Great Western Harmony NHS Choir. 

Looking forward we have more concerts, more joint singing with other choirs, a wedding, and competitive festivals with titles to defend! ...in the near future, we have two local Christmas concerts planned in conjunction with male voice choirs. Then just when we will have had enough of singing Christmas songs, in January 2018, we are going to be recording our second CD, this time with a Christmas theme and in conjunction with Skelmanthorpe MVC. 

There's always something around the corner with Penistone Ladies Choir!
