‘Susannah Sunderland (nee Sykes) was a famous soprano soloist, born in Brighouse, near Huddersfield, in 1819. Her natural talent for singing was noticed by local blacksmith Luke Settle, himself a singer, who first trained her voice, and she subsequently was taught by other respected local amateur musicians ... She retired from the concert platform aged only 45, whilst still in her prime. She celebrated her Golden Wedding Anniversary in 1888 and this was the occasion of a special concert at which she was presented with a glowing testimonial in illuminated script (unfortunately now lost) ... With the money raised from the Golden Wedding concert, a committee of distinguished local men decided to start a Vocal Solo Competition to be held in Huddersfield and named as a tribute to this great Yorkshire soprano. It was initially for singers but later expanded to include pianists alternating annually with violinists.‘

Here a group of amateur musicians met in 1891 to found a "Philharmonic Band" ... Each season the 80-strong-orchestra (augmented by outside players if necessary: it has more than once fielded over 100 performers) gives three or four concerts in Huddersfield Town Hall, and further concerts in other venues.'

‘This impressive building in the heart of Huddersfield welcomes one and all to its concerts, events, functions and meetings. Within the imposing Town Hall is a spectacular concert hall which seats up to 1200 people and hosts numerous events ranging from classical to comedy and from choral to community events.‘ Alert ’The long-established concert season at Huddersfield Town Hall has been under threat for some time now, but it was still something of a shock when borough organist Dr Gordon Stewart found a redundancy letter on his doormat. He is enormously saddened that, after 25 years of providing a popular programme of world-class music, his services will no longer be required when the current season ends.’ [Huddersfield Daily Examiner 22 September 2017]
