Cllr Jackie Ramsay
I have a really soft spot for this wonderful community choir.
They have been kind enough to sing for two events at Dewsbury Station to celebrate their 175th anniversary.
In addition I’ve seen them in action at the Thornhill Lees Dementia Group where they had everyone singing along.
They are a lovely group of people who always look like they are enjoying themselves and it’s infectious.

"I worked with Dewsbury Community Choir on the Musical Moments event for Kirklees Year of Music 2023 in Dewsbury. They were a joy to work with from start to finish, great communication, very flexible with my needs for the event, a totally professional attitude, and of course they sounded fabulous.
What a wonderful community led organisation and a real asset to music and culture in Dewsbury."
Regan Hirst - Royal Voluntary Service
Dewsbury Community Choir attended one of our groups which we run for people living with dementia. The choir was a joy to watch and every one of our members had such an amazing time. The choir provided us all with lyrics so each one of our members could be involved and we all had a lovely sing-along.
Our group was fortunate to witness a beautiful moment between mother and son when the choir were singing, and they danced together – there wasn't a dry eye in the room.
I highly recommend the Dewsbury Community Choir and want to thank them all for being such a delight, blessing us with their beautiful voices and giving our customers an amazing experience.

What a fantastic decision I made to join our choir. It is the highlight of my Thursdays and everyone is so friendly and funny. We sing some amazing songs. All new members are made to feel so welcome and we also have social evenings and events but there is no pressure to take part, it is entirely up to you.

The RVS Thornhill Lees Dementia Support Group and I attended a Thursday evening performance for McMillan Cancer Support.
Everyone was blown away, the sets were put together so well. The acapella piece was exceptional and the harmonies were amazing.
A wonderful evening in very good company, we all had fun and ate very well.
Thank you again to the wonderful Dewsbury Community Choir.
