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 40 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.

Our thanks as always to our ever-enthusiastic musical director, Jane Hobson, and our superbly talented accompanist, Yvonne Woffenden for their never ending committment… Thanks also to the stiff opposition for making us work so hard!

Lets get social

A brief reminder of the soprano zoom rehearsal tomorrow night - Jan 25th at 7:30pm - details on your email...

As mentioned by Denise Pozorski - a quote by Rachel Staunton, artistic Director of London Youth Choir...
“Zoom choir in comparison to normal choir is nothing, but zoom choir in comparison to nothing is everything”

At least we get to see each other...looking forward to seeing all those who join...

so... Happy Christmas to all in Penistone Ladies Choir and all of our supporters from The Choir Committee...Denise, Jayne, Viv, Tracey, Sheila...

As this troubled year draws to a close, we'd like to give heart-felt thanks to our MD Jane for keeping us going since March with videos, warm-ups, zoom chats, zoom rehearsals and quizzes. Keeping in touch really has brought a lot of joy and meant a great deal to us.

Remember these pics & a little sound clip from Christmases past? We'll be back!!
