Blackburn Music Society

Welcome to Blackburn Music Society

Due to COVID-19 we are unable to meet at present, but we are continuing our activities virtually.  For further information click here.

Established in 1932, Blackburn Music Society is a large amateur choir for mixed voices with members from various parts of Lancashire and beyond and ranging in age from students to senior citizens.  Under the inspiring leadership of our Musical Director, Abi Kitching, and our professional accompanist Joy Fielding, we prepare for four main concerts each year. In addition, we usually have one or two singing days associated with our planned concerts. We often perform major choral works, including Handel’s Messiah each December, usually with professional orchestral musicians, accompanists and solo singers.

In recent years the Society has joined forces from time to time with other well-established choirs from the North West for some spectacular concerts.  We work hard to maintain a high standard but we also have fun.  The choir takes every opportunity to play an active part in the local community and has particularly enjoyed participating in events associated with the East Lancashire Hospice and local schools.

If you enjoy singing, you are most welcome to come along to a rehearsal and see if you would like to join us. You don’t need to have had any previous experience but the ability to read music would obviously be an advantage. Mainly what we’re looking for is enthusiasm and a love of making music.

Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings between 7.15 pm and 9.15 pm in the Theatre at St Mary’s College, Shear Brow, Blackburn, BB1 8DX.

If you would like further information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we will be very pleased to hear from you – email bbmusicsoc@gmail.com
