Saddleworth Male Voice Choir      

  Welcome

 

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.

Did you know that singing in a choir also has definite health benefits?

 

A national newspaper article in April 2016 highlighted research published in the "ECancer Medical Science" journal. This shows that singing significantly increases levels of immune proteins which the body uses to battle serious illnesses, and dramatically reduces 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!!
