Saddleworth is the collective name for the area which includes several picturesque
villages in the Pennine hills to the east of Oldham on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border.
Historically in the most westerly part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Saddleworth became part
of Oldham, Greater Manchester, in the 1974 local government reorganisation.
The area boasts a vibrant wealth of music activity, including choirs, operatic societies,
and brass bands, and we are proud to be a part of this.

Why not join us...?
As well as the advantages you might normally consider, did you know that singing in a choir also has definite health benefits?
Don't just take our word for it - a national newspaper article in April 2016 highlighted research published in the "ECancer Medical Science" journal which shows that singing significantly increased levels of immune proteins that the body uses to battle serious illnesses, and dramatically reduced stress hormones such as cortisol. The research was also qouted as concluding that doctors believe this takes strain off the immune system, allowing it to use its resource better!!
