Mirfield Choral Society

Mirfield Choral Society Choral Society

Although Mirfield is known to have had a Choral Society in the late 1800's which disbanded after the turn of the century, it was reformed in 1940 firstly as The Glee Choir, then The Vocal Society and eventually in 1974 as Mirfield Choral Society.
Mirfield Choral Society is an ambitious, open access choir, which performs repertoire covering choral favourites such as Faure’s Requiem and Haydn’s Creation, to more recent works such as Rutter’s Feel the Spirit. There are no auditions to join the choir and new members would be welcomed in all sections. Rehearsals, led by our Musical Director Roland Mander, appointed in 2017 and Deputy Musical Director / Resident Accompanist of the last 21 years, Michael Glover, are held at Trinity Methodist Church in Mirfield on Monday evenings, 7.30pm-9.30pm and singers are welcome to try us for a few weeks before officially joining.
We currently hold four concerts each year, falling neatly into each season: Christmas, Spring (usually a sacred choral work), Summer (lighter musical works) and an Autumn Social (for members and friends only). We rehearse for around 12 weeks prior to each concert.
In 2010 Mirfield Choral Society celebrated its 70th Anniversary and produced a CD entitled 'A Yorkshire Christmas' in honour of the occasion (still available from members of the choir at £4) and next year (2020) we will be celebrating our 80th Anniversary.
