We are a friendly and diverse group of over 80 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!
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.
