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 fantsatically busy year with concerts, competitions, CD recordings and fundraising events....So our break for August is well deserved by all! Rehearsals start again on 5th September, and our first event in the diary is a joint charity concert on 24th September with Millhouse Male Voice Choir & Thurlstone Brass Band, in the Penistone Paramount. 

We're now looking ahead to the next season - learning some new pieces, rehearsing our repertoire for Christmas, various competitions throughout the year and June 2017 promises to be a very exciting month....including singing in a performance of Vivaldi's Gloria with Skelmanthorpe MVC and a trip South to Marlborough planned to sing together with two other choirs. 

It's exciting times for Penistone Ladies - we're going from strength to strength!
