Yorkshire Wolds Community Choir was founded in 2011 by Fiona Bone who is the current musical director. It all started at a BBQ at Fiona's house where, after a ‘few drinks’ everyone start singing! One bright spark suggested Fiona start a choir, and the rest is history.

 

Originally known as Leconfield Community Choir, the name change came about when the choir started offering two rehearsals sessions. Monday evenings in Leconfield and Tuesday evenings in Hutton Cranswick.  The choir started with just 8 members and now has in excess of 100! 

 

Fiona is still leading the choir and there are some members still with us from those early days. The choir has come a long way in that time but the ethos is to have fun singing whilst also raising money for charity - we have raised over £16K so far! 


If you would like to a part of this fantastic singing sensation ~ there is no audition. The only attribute required is a sense of humour.

Yorkshire Wolds Community Choir currently has around 80 active members – including 14 men! We meet every Monday  at The White Horse Pub in Hutton Cranswick and every Tuesday evening at Leconfield Village Hall to learn new songs, practice old ones and enjoy ourselves. Choir members are of all abilities and ages. Leconfield Community Choir is all about enjoying yourself and, if we can, raising some money for charity on the way. 
We sing a wide range of songs from across, genres, periods and styles. We tend to perform songs in four parts. At the moment our repertoire includes: Bridge Over Troubled Water, Sing Sing Sing, Mack the Knife and Over the Rainbow by. We also have a selection of carols up our sleeve for the festive season. We are always looking to welcome new members. There are no auditions, no need to be able to read music, no need to commit to coming every week. All you need is a sense of fun and a love of music. You will find us in Leconfield Village Hall between 7 pm and 8:30 pm every Tuesday and in the bar next door afterwards.
‚ÄčThe choir has performed in all sorts of different venues and for a range of events including Weddings, Hull City Hall, Residential Homes, and the Churches. They have performed on Look North as part of the Children In Need celebrations; have been a 'warm-up act' for Tia Mero, and we have twice performed for the Singing For The Brain Charity. We were honoured to have been invited to be a part of the 70th anniversary celebrations for the Air Sea Rescue on the RAF base in Leconfield and to have been invited to sing for the 100th anniversary of the RAF. In October every year, we have a birthday concert where we raise money for charity. This year our chosen charity is Bundles Of Joy.
