About the Choir

The Lindow Singers is an enthusiastic mixed voice choir of around 35 singers. The choir was founded in 1964 by a group of friends in Wilmslow, who met near Lindow Common. Since then the choir has grown but the aim of singing for fun and friendship remains core.

The choir gives four main concerts a year, in the Wilmslow, Handforth and Alderley Edge areas. We sing a range of music, both sacred and secular. We are pleased to welcome Kathryn Bradley as our new conductor.Our accompanist is Ethan Mitchell.

From time to time we join forces with other Choral Societies to perform larger works. We have been pleased to take part in joint concerts with Sale Choral Society, Sale Gilbert and Sullivan Society and with local bands, Poynton Royal British Legion Concert Band and Mereside Brass.

To celebrate our 50th Anniversary we commissioned a work, ‘Spirit of Lindow’, from Sasha Johnson Manning, composer of the Manchester Carols, and we featured this in our November and June concerts during the year. In our Spring concert this year we sang another commissioned work, Become Spring, written by our talented accompanist, Ethan.

Social activities add to our enjoyment. They include an annual dinner and a summer barbecue.We are still a friendly group and are happy to welcome singers who would like to join us.

The choir is a registered charity, no 1101392, is associated with Making Music, and is supported by the Evans Arts Trust and Cheshire East Council.
