We are a friendly and diverse group of almost a hundred members. We welcome anyone over the age of 18 who identifies with the LGBT+ community to join us.
We rehearse from 7pm to 9:30pm on Monday evenings (excluding public holidays) at Hallé St Michael's in George Leigh Street, Ancoats. Arrive any time from 6:45pm.
As a community choir, we don't audition our members. We recognise when people first join they are on a learning curve, and we are there to help you along and boost your confidence. You'll soon find that singing together is a hugely joyful experience.
We have a small break in the middle of rehearsal and if it's your first time we will make sure one of us welcomes you. Usually, some of us head for a local pub or the Village to socialise after the rehearsal. It's a good place to get acquainted with other members. Once a month, we finish rehearsal at 9pm to sing a few songs at Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse in Ancoats, our local pub. If you'd like to listen to us and get to know us a little before coming to a rehearsal, you could come and say hello then. Check with Seven Bro7hers for when we're next singing there.
We encourage you to be as comfortable as possible when you sing – sit down if you need to; move to the front if you are having difficulty seeing our musical director, or hearing the part; experiment by moving to a different section to see which suits you best and most important of all… enjoy yourself! The video above was taken at one of our rehearsals.
We are always interested in seeing new members, and we especially welcome prospective singers a few minutes before the start of the rehearsal on the first Monday of the month.
