Busy Autumn For New Skipton Choir
David Weale
Newly formed The Skipton Choir has a busy Autumn season of concerts and performances lined up.

The 80-strong choir, formerly known as Rock Up and Sing (Skipton), is set to appear at the annual Glusburn FallFest as part of an afternoon of Music in the Marquee at Glusburn Institute on Sunday September 29 from 3 – 5pm.

Led by newly appointed musical director David Weale, the choir will stage a showcase event, Music for Martin House, at Christ Church, Skipton, on Saturday November 16, featuring a range of well-known rock and pop anthems as well as more thoughtful modern choral work.

That’s followed by a busy December with festive appearances planned at Embsay with Eastby Village Institute on Sunday December 1 for the Rotary Club of Skipton Craven; Holy Trinity Church, Skipton on Thursday December 5 for the Light Up a Life with Martin House service; St Joseph’s Community Centre, Barnoldswick, on Saturday December 7 in aid of the RNLI; and at Christ Church Skipton on Wednesday December 11 in aid of the Sue Ryder Manorlands hospice.

Said choir chairman Carol Squire:
“We’re delighted to have been invited to perform at so many local events. Although our name is new, the choir itself has been singing together for nearly 10 years so we have quite an extensive ‘back catalogue’ as well as all the exciting new music we are learning with David. Everyone in the choir is really looking forward to the line-up of community performances – they’re a great opportunity to show what we can do!”
