Huddersfield Choral Society Choral Society

Founded in 1836, the Huddersfield Choral Society has developed an international reputation as one of the UK's leading choral societies. Our Junior Choirs were formed in 1986.
The Society's busy schedule is centred on its own subscription concert season in Huddersfield Town Hall, including its annual performances of Messiah. The choir also performs in other major concert venues in the UK and abroad, it regularly broadcasts for BBC radio and television, and has a long history of pioneering recordings.

"We strive to uphold and continually renew a proud tradition of choral singing"

Our professional colleagues are Artistic Advisor, Martyn Brabbins; Choral Director, Gregory Batsleer; Associate Choral Directors Francis Cooke and Ellie Slorach and Vocal Coach is Joyce Tindsley. Rehearsal accompanist is Daniel Gordon and deputy accompanist Malcolm Hinchliffe. Alison North MBE directs our Youth Choirs.
