As a result of COVID-19 we are only meeting online until it is safe to be back together.
We're still meeting each Sunday afternoon but currently only virtually/online. You're still welcome to join us online just drop us an email if you'd like the joining details.
When we meet in person we meet on Sunday afternoons 3:30pm to 5:30pm at Austin Friars School. We are an open choir and are always open to new members, we are particularly keen to recruit more men to join us. There are no auditions and the first session is completely free of charge so there is no obligation to join if it's not right for you.
Initially founded in 2012 by the Trinity Area Community Trust and with a membership of over 100, we are an open access choir made up of people from across Carlisle and beyond who just love making music together. We are always open to new members, there is no audition process and there is no requirement for members to be able to read music. We pride ourselves in giving members opportunities in singing they may not have had before. The choir brings together people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to sing a wide variety of music from the classical to more modern under the directorship of Ellen Mawhinney with accompanist Kristine Donnan.
Carlisle Community Choir is a registered charity, charity number 1174971.
