The Washburn Valley Choir rehearses regularly on Monday evenings at St Oswald’s Church, Leathley. We sing on special occasions at the churches within the Washburn Valley.

After 4 years in its current format the choir continues to thrive and serve the churches of the valley; we currently number 6 Sopranos, 5 Altos, 4 Tenors and 5 Basses. We are supported by some very accomplished accompanists…!

We sing mainly at church services, but occasionally there is scope for performing at other celebrations, as evidenced by our Flower Festival appearance 2 years ago, when members of the Wharfe Valley Male Voice Choir and Madrigalis joined us to make a very happy sound.

We attend key church events, including Easter, Harvest and Christmas.

As choral director I encourage the choir to sing to their maximum capabilities in a friendly and positive atmosphere. We have tackled a wide range of repertoire and it is a continuous learning process.
