The Pennine Singers – Chamber Choir

The Pennine Singers are a mixed voice chamber choir comprising about twenty experienced choral enthusiasts.  We maintain a busy concert schedule, performing regularly in the Saddleworth and Glossop areas as well as further afield.

We cover an extensive repertoire from Masses, to Musicals, from the Renaissance to contemporary times, from Purcell to Cole Porter and everything in between and beyond.  We have worked with many distinguished singers, organists and other musicians, including instrumentalists from the BBC Philharmonic.

Every other year we tour, providing music for services in great English Cathedrals and Abbeys, including Hereford, Lichfield, Worcester, Lincoln, Coventry, Tewkesbury Abbey and most recently Gloucester.  We have great experience and understanding of the Church of England choral tradition and its part in the Church’s services.

We have been creating choral music for over 30 years, founded originally in 1983 by our former conductor Jack Pickford.  Since 2016 we have been under the direction of Liz Brocklehurst, with occasional performances under guest conductors.
