The Barnby Choir, based in Wilmslow, Cheshire, has approximately 60 members of all ages and from all walks of life. We share a love of choral music and a desire to produce exciting performances to a high standard. Our repertoire includes major sacred and secular choral works as well as more unusual music, both traditional and modern.

We meet for rehearsals on Tuesday evenings from September to May, and put on three or four concerts a year, frequently with professional soloists and instrumentalists. Rehearsals are held from 8-9.45pm at
Wilmslow Methodist Church, Kings Close, Water Lane, Wilmslow SK9 5AR

We are always pleased to receive applications from prospective members in all sections of the choir (soprano, alto, tenor and bass), and we are currently keen to expand our numbers for what promises to be an enjoyable year both musically and socially.

We offer FREE MEMBERSHIP to students and reduced fees are available for the under-25s. Any singers wishing to join us will be most welcome at rehearsal any Tuesday evening. If you are interested in joining us, or further information please contact the Choir Secretary on 0161 485 1659, or email us using the form below.

After almost 80 years of successful music-making, The Barnby Choir continues to thrive and has exciting plans for the coming seasons. To help realise these plans, we are developing a number of fund-raising schemes, among them the ‘Friends of the Barnby Choir’, through which members of our choir and audience can be more involved in securing the Choir’s future.
