The Sheffield Chorale is a popular and friendly mixed voice choir of around 50-60 singers, with a high reputation in the city and beyond.

They enjoy singing all kinds of music, accompanied and a capella, from early music to modern part-songs, as well as major choral works.

They are always keen to welcome new singers, especially tenors. If you can read music, have some experience of choral singing and are interested in joining, email on [email protected]
