Barnsley Community Choir is recruiting new members of all ages and abilities to join the group as rehearsals begin again after the summer break.

The choir prides itself on offering anyone who enjoys singing the opportunity to rehearse with like-minded people and perform concerts in and around the Barnsley area, without the need to audition or read music.

Based at the college’s Old Mill Lane campus, the choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings between 7.00pm and 8.30pm during term-time and musical styles ranging from classical, pop and rock to musical theatre are included in the choir’s repertoire.

Choir leader Susan Donnelly is looking forward to rehearsals starting on Tuesday 8 September. She said: “The Barnsley Community Choir are a great bunch of people who enjoy singing and performing community based concerts in order to help raise funds for local charities. We’d love to welcome new members along to our rehearsals and would really like to boost our male membership in order to produce a broader and richer sound. Anyone interested should just come along to Barnsley College’s Old Mill Lane campus at 7.00pm on Tuesday 8 September.”
