Singing Day

The Barnby Choir Singing Day is an annual event to which we invite all interested singers from across the region to sing through and perform with us a less familiar piece of choral music under the guidance of a guest conductor. For some years now we have had the privilege of welcoming the ebullient and talented Keith Orrell, Musical Director of the William Byrd Singers and the Liverpool Welsh Choral Union, to lead our Singing Day, and Keith has ably taken us through a wide variety of works, such as George Dyson’s The Canterbury Pilgrims, Bob Chilcott’s A Little Jazz Mass, Rachmaninov’s Vespers and Exsultet, one of Keith’s own compositions, to name just a few.

The day is always immensely enjoyable and includes refreshments, a book-stall and a cake-stall to enjoy in the breaks. As soon as we have a date and details for our next Singing Day they will be published here.

Rehearsals from 14 September 2021 will take place every Tuesday evening from 8pm – 9.30pm at the United Reformed Church, Chapel Lane, Wilmslow SK9 1PR. For more information about joining the choir, please click here
