Southport Lyric Singers

Welcome

The Southport Lyric Singers is a mixed voice (SATB) choir of about 25 singers plus conductor and accompanist. We are non-political and non-sectarian and the object is to study and practise music in order to foster public knowledge and appreciation by means of public performance and assist and support charitable institutions.

Repertoire

Our repertoire is extremely varied and includes selections from many popular shows such as Les Miserables, Oliver and My Fair Lady, as well as traditional songs, folk songs and anthems.

Concerts this Year

The Concert in June in aid of SSAFA was well attended and the programme proved popular with the audience who also donated generously to the SSAFA collecting box and the purchase of Raffle tickets. As a result, a cheque for Ā£500 was presented to SSAFA in September.
The Choir have completed their usual Autumn Programme at the Promenade Rest Home, Connell Court Methodist Home and Marshside Tuesday Club. They also performed at Brunlees Court on Tuesday, November 13th.

Christmas Concerts

Members are now busy rehearsing for their usual Christmas concerts and especially the one in aid of Queenscourt. This will be held in All Saints Church Hall, Park Road, Southport on Friday 7th December at 7.30pm. This concert is promoted by the Queenscourt Central Support Group who will be selling tickets for their usual raffle.

Rehearsals

We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 (with a tea break!) in the small hall at Lord Street West Reformed Church. (Near the roundabout at the South end of Lord Street).
