Ryton Chorale are a very friendly and professional choir that sing a wide variety of music. We are always looking for new singers to join the choir and you will be made very welcome, but we especially need Tenors.

Scores are available to hire, we have access to rehearsal CDs and our M.D. provides a rehearsal schedule for all major choral pieces. Rehearsals are held every Monday evening at the Holy Family School, Worksop S80 2SF from 7.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m.

Please email sing@rytonchorale.org.uk or come to a rehearsal if you are interested

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic face-to-face rehearsals have been suspended. We are following government rules as the situation improves and hope for a return to normal choir activities in September. Watch this space for updates.

During the COVID pandemic Ryton Chorale have produced a number of "virtual" choir recordings. You can find the links to these on the Recent Events tab.

We are currently planning for concerts to recommence in late 2021, if restrictions allow. Our concert calendar follows. This is subject to amendment.
