Scunthorpe Cooperative Junior Choir has been formed for more than 80 years and consists of up to 200 youngsters divided into two training choirs and the main choir. You can move between the different pages by using the menu on the right hand side of every page. On some pages we've highlighted "links" within the text that take you to another page.
To find out about our programme of concerts go to the Forthcoming Events page. To learn of our past events, see the Archive of Events page.
We've also created some special gallery pages for special trips.
See About Us for more general information about the Choir and information on our choirmaster Susan Hollingworth. If you or someone you know wants to join us, see the Membership Details page. Our choir is a friendly open access choir and no-one interested is turned away. There is a small audition for the main choir but this is only to ensure you are placed within the correct section for your voice. We have fun rehearsing and also have trips abroad on a bi-yearly basis where we perform in famous and exciting places. Our previous trips have seen us travel to Austrialia to take part in the Olympic Games Torch Procession, to Canada for Voices 500, the Millennium Dome, the Holocaust Memorial Service at Westminster, Disneyland Paris. We are also planning to travel to Italy in 2011 to sing in St Mark's Square in Venice.
Interested? Why not contact us and come along to a rehearsal to see for yourself. You can also follow us on Twitter or Facebook by clicking on the links below.
Several ex-choristers suggested we should had a reunion for past members of the choir. The idea met with a mixture of excitement and apprehension; as you can read on this page. Having been established over 80 years we could have expected a huge turn out for such an event Anyway... after much prepartion the day of the Reunion came and it turned out to be a great success. Around 70 past members of the choir returned, some of them having joined the choir in the 1940's. You can see pictures of the day from a link on the News Page and read more about the day.
