Southport Lyric Singers

Welcome

The Southport Lyric Singers is a mixed voice (SATB) choir of about 30 singers plus conductor and two accompanists. 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.

Charity Concert in aid of Hearing Dogs

This year’s charity concert by the Southport Lyric Singers will be in support of Hearing Dogs. It will take place on Friday 16 June at Lord Street West Church Hall at 7.30pm. Tickets are only Ā£5 including refreshments, so please bring extra money for the Raffle or to make an extra donation. Mary Molloy with her dog, Brie, will be on hand to explain the work done by the Charity and how she is helped by Brie.

The choir has a wide repertoire and the performance will include a selection of songs from South Pacific and conclude with a rousing selection from Camelot. They will be joined by flautist Fiona Tucker who will accompany ‘Count Your Blessings’ as well as performing a solo item. There will also be monologues by choir members Audrey Wright and Ray Dutton.

Tickets are available from the Lyrics (01704 227017) or on the door.

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

The Lyrics is a mixed voice choir which prides itself on singing in harmony. 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. We are particularly keen to strengthen the tenors and bass sections.
