HIRE US

We would be delighted to perform at your event for your entertainment or to help you raise funds for your organisation or charity.


Please contact either of the secretaries to discuss making a booking. Remember that the choir is typically booked well in advance so we would normally require several months notice.


Our repertoire covers a wide range of music including standard choir pieces, songs from the shows, religious music and some interesting modern arrangements. Where possible we would look to accommodate any particular requests, however our Musical Director would always be the final arbiter of concert content.


Musical Partners

Over the years we have performed alongside other choirs, soloists, instrumentalists, and brass bands. We will, of course, be pleased to sing with any band or soloist from your local community if required.


In particular we have enjoyed a close working relationship with the Rossendale Male Voice Choir for many years. When the ladies join with the men to perform as a mixed choir, it brings a whole new level of excitement, volume and impact to our performance. This mixed choir of over 70 voices is particularly impressive in larger venues.


Fees for joint choir events would be negotiated separately.


Fees

Fee - negotiable on application.  Additional expences may be incurred if venue is more than 30 miles from Rossendale.  We are responsive to the needs of our local community and where a community group or small charity is looking to raise funds for a good cause, individual circumstances will be considered.
