We have just registered Penistone Ladies Choir as a Voices Yorkshire Choir. From 1858 to 1985, Leeds was host to one of the most successful and renowned choral festivals in the world. But by 1985, the popularity of choral music and choirs had started to wane. However as we go into 2019, choral music and choirs have gained massively in popularity and a new 21st century version is being set up by the Yorkshire College of Music and Drama under the title “Voices Yorkshire”. This aims to celebrate, promote and support choirs and choral music throughout the county and put Yorkshire back on the world musical and choral map! The festival will culminate in a number of grand finale performances at Leeds Town Hall on the 14th September 2019.
We are proud to be supporting this “Voices Yorkshire” festival and so will be including the festival logo on our website and other concert literature throughout 2019.
