‘Formed in 1874, has had a long and successful history. It aims to make choral music readily accessible to the wider community through live concerts, and to provide the opportunity for local people to develop their musical skills. In the past there were grand concerts in the Pontefract Assembly Rooms, with full professional orchestras and soloists. Now, financial considerations mean that these are no longer possible. This situation does, however, have its advantages, for we are able to use local musicians and soloists, many of them promising young performers at the start of the​ir careers, who we are keen to encourage and support.’
