We are a friendly, not-for-profit community choir for both men and women that meet in Hebden Bridge for the love of singing great songs together. We practise on a Thursday evening and welcome new members, with no audition. We aim to learn, practise and perform songs from the world-wide community singing tradition, including songs of peace, freedom, struggle and liberation. Calder Valley Voices looks to encourage new members to participate in a supportive environment and to help all members develop their self-confidence through participation in music-making, regardless of ability and musical experience. Calder Valley Voices aims to be open and accessible to all living in the area around Hebden Bridge, Todmorden, Mytholmroyd, Cornholme and beyond. It is committed to combatting oppression or discrimination whether on the grounds of race, gender, age, sexual orientation or for reasons of disability.
We are about to restart our autumn term, where we will kick off with some new material and revisit some favourites from our repertoire, as we work towards our autumn poerformances at Calderland and Christmas.
Why not have a listen to “Calder Valley’s Rising“, a song we wrote in early 2016 for relief for flood victims in the local area.
