Silsden Singers – Community Choir, Silsden, West Yorkshire
Here Is Our Home
Silsden singers is a community choir. We meet on Tuesdays evenings in Term-time, at the Youth Centre in the Daisy Chain Children's Centre (next to the Fire Station) in Elliott Street, Silsden, in the westernmost part of West Yorkshire.
We celebrate our twentieth birthday on the 17th of July. All welcome to share the event!
Silsden Singers is a mixed choir with over 40 members. We are open to all adults who want to have fun, singing in harmony with others.
These examples are from a 2009 performance in Kirby Malham church.
