15/01/2019 17:35
As usual for The Manchester Chorale, December was a busy month with scarcely time to rehearse. We started on the 8th December with Navidad Nuestra in Didsbury Baptist Church. We must have got something right because it was a full house and everyone was full of praise for a very varied Christmas...

31/10/2015 12:05
Our first concert of the season started with a deep bass rumble. It felt like a passing tram, causing a vibration in the chest.
