Biography: Ladybrook Singers is a highly regarded ladies choir from Stockport. They come from a wide range of backgrounds: teachers, nurses and admin but they are united by their love of singing.
Established in 1928, the choir soon began achieving success in music festivals. The highlight of those early years was their eight-week tour of Canada, quite an adventure in 1932. In 1950 they were invited to sing in The Lausanne Music Festival and won first prize. The same year they sang in the Llangollen Eisteddfod, and appeared there throughout the 50s, 60s and 70s. It’s always been a wonderful thrill for them to participate and get to listen and watch other choirs perform.
In recent years they have been privileged to sing in beautiful places including Durham Cathedral, Bowes Museum, Worcester Cathedral, and Trinity Church. Performing at The Menin Gate in 2011 was a memorable experience. Winning the Joseph Hancock trophy at the Biddulph Festival was a highlight of 2015. In 2016 we were delighted with a win at the Mrs Sunderland Festival in Huddersfield, even more so when we were awarded The Huddersfield Centenary Trophy for singing the best piece of the day.
