The Gledholt Male Voice Choir of Huddersfield was founded in 1948 and is one of the leading choirs in West Yorkshire, an area famed for its musical traditions. The choir’s Musical Director is Susan Wilkinson who has created a programme which, in addition to male voice choir favourites, will draw on the choir’s repertoire of classical and choral songs, patriotic numbers, spirituals, songs from the shows, religious pieces, and a range of popular music through the decades.
The choir has appeared on BBC Songs of Praise and has given concerts in France and Belgium, where they sang at the Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres. They have performed at many venues in the United Kingdom including a Rugby international match, the National Eisteddfod of Wales, the Cornwall International Male Voice Choral Festival, in the Eden Project biomes, at the Beamish Museum, in Fountains Abbey and as part of massed choir events at the Royal Albert Hall.
