“I was invited by Chairman, Derek Parr, after hearing me sing in church. I declined for sometime pleading pressure of work and my perceived inability to sing well enough. However, after accepting an invitation to a concert I was overwhelmed by the magnificent sound and joined immediately. From then on I have enjoyed wonderful camaraderie and been privileged to be part of a brilliant choral experience with Haydock, and jointly with many other choirs.”
“My association with male voice choirs started aged 13 when my voice broke. I joined Rossendale Male Voice Choir after being encouraged by my school music teacher. I spent seven happy years with them, a very successful choir and it was an education in how to sing, but a change in career saw me leave the Rossendale Valley for Widnes.
Singing came to an end until I took early retirement and a chance viewing of Songs of Praise one evening rekindled my interest after hearing a Welsh Male Voice choir on the programme. I joined a local male voice choir and spent ten years with them, but circumstances saw me leave and come to Haydock three and a half years ago.
I would say to anyone, come and give it a go, you don’t have to read music, you won’t have to audition in front of other members, nor do you have to be a soloist. I am sure that you will enjoy the company and the banter.”
