Debrose Ladies Choir Rochdale - New members wanted

Information Sheet for Prospective Members


The Debrose Choir was founded in 1982 and performs a minimum of two concerts per year. The choir is made up of people from all walks of life, no superstars, just people who genuinely want to sing, love to sing and who want to do it well. The chorus provides an opportunity to express your love of music in a warm and friendly community environment. Many of us have formed close and lasting friendships with people whom we met through the Debrose.


Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings, from 7:15 to 9.15p.m. at Rochdale Music Service, Fieldhouse School, Greenbank Road, Rochdale OL12 0HZ.


We prepare two concerts each year, our Winter Concert in December and our Spring Concert in late April or early May.

Prospective Members

The Debrose is open to women of all ages and singing abilities. Before joining, prospective members are asked to attend two rehearsals as guests to see if they like the choir, conductor and music. Guests are then invited for a short informal chat/audition with the Director to see where they would best be placed in the choir. Membership may then be offered, if appropriate.

Visit Our Website

Please visit our website at and listen to samples of our music from previous concerts. You can also find out more about our director, our music and our events.


Membership fees are currently £4.00 per week. These fees help to defray the cost of rehearsal hall rental, music, accompanist and director expenses and so on.
