STEETON MVC IN A NUTSHELL
Based in the village of Steeton, situated between Keighley and Skipton and within sight of Ilkley Moor, Steeton MVC is one of the oldest and most respected male voice choirs in Yorkshire.
In 2008 we celebrated our centenary with a choir that is thriving and singing as well, if not better, than ever.
This website gives details of our recordings and concert programme.
Choir honours its veteran members
Terry Tobin, Peter Sharp, John Hirst, Len Wilson (President), Frank Garth, Michael Garnett, Ralph Beards, Ted Mould (l -r)
Monday 24th October was the day when the choir bestowed Life Membership on five of its long-standing members who have recently had to retire from the choir for various reasons. Ken Wardell was also made a Life Member but his absence meant that his presentation had to be made one week later. At the same ceremony 25 year service badges were presented to 1st Tenor Michael Garnett and 2nd Tenor Frank Garth.
Patrons’ reception – Saturday 10/10/15
This year’s Annual Concert gave the choir the opportunity to say a special thank you to our Patrons for the invaluable support they give to the choir year in, year out. So a special reception was held at the King’s Hall Winter Gardens just before the start of the concert.
If you would like to support the choir, why not consider becoming a patron? There are benefits to both parties! Contact choir secretary for details.
In March 2013, the choir was invited to participate in the prestigious Choirs Rock! event in The Royal Armouries, Leeds. We were delighted when we actually won and are therefore now able to say that our choir officially rocks!
