A community choir based in Blackburn, Lancashire. We welcome anyone who simply enjoys singing.
We are an enthusiastic group of around 95 members of all ages. Under the leadership of our inspirational musical director, Jeff Borradaile, we sing an exciting range of songs, all a cappella. No audition! We perform to a high standard at events throughout the year, and welcome experienced singers to become involved and encourage those who may be new to choral singing. We meet every Thursday, 7.00 pm – 9.30 pm.
