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!

Lets get social

What a super full church in #Penistone this evening. Thank you to all the audience for coming along on this cold, wet evening. Think we should have raised lots of £ with Millhouse Green Male Voice Choir for our chosen charity - Yorkshire Childrens Charity...
Merry Christmas all!

It was a delight to sing to a full church in #UpperDenby tonight. Special too as it has just been reordered and so has a lovely warm modern feel to it, with great acoustics.
Our thanks to everyone who came to support us, to flute soloist Hannah Smalley, our accompanist Yvonne Woffenden & MD Jane Hobson.
Merry Christmas all!
