Southport Lyric Singers

Welcome

The Southport Lyric Singers is a mixed voice (SATB) choir of about 30 singers plus conductor and accompanist. We are non-political and non-sectarian and the object is to study and practise music in order to foster public knowledge and appreciation by means of public performance and assist and support charitable institutions.

Christmas Concert

We are presenting our usual Christmas Concert in aid of Queenscourt Hospice on Friday 8th December at All Saints Church Hall, Park Road, Southport at 7.30pm. There will be the usual mix of traditional and modern Christmas music including solos and monologues by members of the Choir, together with audience carols. The Concert will be conducted by Edna Woodward and the accompanist will be Marjorie Jewell, with compere Dorothy H. Hughes.

Repertoire

Our repertoire is extremely varied and includes selections from many popular shows such as Les Miserables, Oliver and My Fair Lady, as well as traditional songs, folk songs and anthems.

Performances

We give 2 or 3 evening performances annually, usually in support of a local charity, and also several afternoon concerts at various clubs and homes in the area. We are always very busy at Christmas, giving an evening concert in aid of Queenscourt Hospice and several afternoon concerts. To see the programme for the coming year, click here.

Rehearsals

We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 (with a tea break!) in either the large or small hall at Lord Street West Reformed Church. (Near the roundabout at the South end of Lord Street).

New Members

Anyone wishing to attend a rehearsal, with a view to joining the choir, should e-mail the secretary at lyricsecretary@hotmail.co.uk. Although we have 5 tenors and 8 basses, we are particularly keen to strengthen this section.
