Thank you to everyone who participated in the Hymn Sing @ Brighouse!  While we had a slightly smaller congregation than in previous years, everyone made up for it in enthusiasm… and you can see it on our faces!!


Pensioners’ Fair @ Mytholmroyd

A rather long overdue post so please accept my apologies for the timeliness.

In February, some choir members helped out to raise the profile of the Overgate Hospice Choir and, hopeful, introduce some new members to the wonderful world of choral singing by holding a stand at the Mytholmroyd Pensioners’ Fair.  It was a lovely day and we all got to chat to lots of different people – hopefully enticing some new members in the process.  Big thank you to Rachel and others who helped to arrange this.
