‘Our primary purpose is to have fun with friends, and our musical repertoire covers a wide range of interests, from classical pieces to modern hits ... The choir performs two big concerts per year in June and December ... We also respond, where we can, to invitations to perform at other local events ... The choir has sung at many locations throughout North Cumbria over the years ... The choir has always been dedicated to raising funds for local charities wherever possible.‘

 

‘We have around 25 singers, and specialise in Early Music. We're based in Brampton, Cumbria, UK, and give at least three concerts a year.’

 

‘The City of Carlisle Orchestra (formerly Eden Concert Orchestra) was established in 1962. Its objective is to provide an opportunity for regular rehearsals of the symphony repertoire for amateur and professional players. The Orchestra plays three concerts a year in the city. For at least one of these concerts, guest professional soloists or gifted amateurs are invited to perform with the orchestra. We are always looking for new members. Players should be a minimum of Grade 7 standard and there is no age restriction ... Get in touch!’

‘A fun and friendly group that aims to enjoy practice as much as performances! ... Choir members come from as far away as Penrith, though most live in the Brampton or Carlisle area. Solway Singers perform two concerts a year, one at Christmas and one in the spring.’

 

The choir currently has about 55 mixed voices and a repertoire which includes both religious and secular music from the 15th to the 21st centuries. The choir gives two major concerts a year, in December and June ... Wigton Choral Society also forms a significant part of Cumbria Rural Choirs, who aim to perform a large-scale choral work each spring with professional orchestra, soloists and conductor ... Society members come from a wide area of north Cumbria, and new members are always welcome. Singing in a choir is a wonderful opportunity to have voice training, learn some of the gems of the choral repertoire, take part in quality performances - and make new friends. Singing also helps your breathing, your stress levels and your health, so if you read music and enjoy singing, bring your voice along and give it a go!‘

Carlisle Cathedral is an unforgettable concert venue. The building’s superb acoustics are ideal for both choral and instrumental performances ... One of the Cathedral Choirs sings at the main Sunday Eucharist in term time, with the Cathedral’s Voluntary Choir or a visiting choir covering many Sundays during the choir holidays. On six days a week Choral Evensong is sung by one of the Cathedral’s Choirs.‘
