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.

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!

A video from Jane...
"For those of you who missed the message, I became a grandma for the second time last week to a beautiful little boy, so I was in Rotherham looking after my other little grandson, hence no video!
I was inspired by our amazing Queen with her message to the nation ending with "We'll Meet Again". It's been a mammoth task with the limited equipment and material I have but I hope you enjoy this compilation relevant to all my choirs."

An #Easter message from Jane for us all:

“No video of me and my antics this week as I became a grandma for the
second time to a beautiful baby boy named Dylan (Dill for short). I
needed to look after my other grandson, Benji, while my daughter was in
labour so here I am in Rotherham! In the meantime enjoy this video and
Happy Easter to you all.”
