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!

Penistone Ladies Choir
It was a sad & emotional evening for us all yesterday as it was our MD Jane Hobson’s last rehearsal with us. So lovely to sing through some of the highlights of our repertoire & also to see everyone together in the church, but so sad to see Jane go. Our heartfelt thanks to her for everything she has done for the choir over the last 10 years. As our Chair Denise said: she has taken us so far both in terms of geography (France, Whitby, Lancashire, Cirencester…) and in the quality of our singing, winning many competitions and cups! Thank You Jane! All the best!Penistone Ladies ChoirX ...
