Concerts are performed locally as well as further afield. The Choir presents its own concerts twice yearly at Saddleworth (Uppermill) Civic Hall featuring a variety of guest artists that have included leading soloists, folk groups and brass bands, some of whom were household names. Also, and possibly uniquely for a male voice choir, there is an annual performance of Handel's Messiah each December, also at the Civic Hall, with the men being joined by an augmented chorus of ladies, plus professional soloists and orchestra.
In addition to a busy concert schedule, we regularly enter competitive Music Festivals. Over the years since our first such event in 1957, first prizes have included Hazel Grove, Huddersfield, Macclesfield, Blackpool, Blackburn, Biddulph, Penistone, Southport, Eskdale (Whitby), Don Valley (won for five successive years from 2004 to 2008 inclusive), and the Manchester Amateur Choral Competition.
The totals to date (2016) from 86 festival entries are
34 winners trophies, and 22 'runners up' awards.
Exchange visits with other choirs have taken us to Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, North and East Yorkshire, Germany, Holland, Slovenia, Spain, Gibraltar, and Italy.
There have also been TV appearances (including the BBC's Songs of Praise recorded around Saddleworth in 2000), radio broadcasts (notably one for the BBC’s Sunday Half Hour programme in 2003) plus several CD recordings.
