We sing four-part songs without accompaniment, with a repertoire ranging from madrigals to swing and pop, from countries including Italy, Germany, France and Japan. Fran Wells is our very experienced and accomplished musical director.

We are close to full strength, but vacancies may arise for singers (in particular tenors) who have an ability to sight read and to blend into a small vocal group. Singers who can not be immediately included will be able to join a waiting list.

We meet on alternate Tuesdays in a large, airy rehearsal space at the Church of the Nazarene, Heeley, which is easily accessible by bus. We aim for performance standard, and have sung at venues such as Sheffield Cathedral, Winter Garden (Classical Music Weekends), Victoria Hall and Railway Station, as well as hospitals, lunch clubs and shops.

We are happy to fund-raise for charities, especially through Christmas Carol singing. We are happy to consider singing on request for SU3A functions, as well as other events.
