The Choir

Notability is a choir of around 16 people based in Manchester. We are available to sing at a variety of events, such as weddings, after-dinner entertainment, guest appearances as well as full concerts and Charity events.  We usually charge a small fee to meet our expenses (travel & music purchase essentially).

We sing a wide range of music. Visit our Music page for the sort of sound we make and the music we sing. Read more about our celebration of Ray Peake's 80th (see below) for an example of our repertoire.

We cover quite a large area from our home base in Manchester. Treales, Freckleton, Lytham-St. Anne's and St Michael's-on-Wyre (all in the Fylde), Bamford in Derbyshire, Rainford in Merseyside, Bradford and Skipton in Yorkshire and Jodrell Bank, Wincle and Nether Alderley in Cheshire have all been within our compass.
We also like to get away for a weekend each year. In 2006 we gave a concert at the church of St George and St Luke in Barrow in Furness (see the Gallery for some pictures of our walk nearby). In other years we have stayed in Chipping, Lancashire (a concert in aid of the church roof), Evesham, Worcestershire (the Parish Church tower), Wallingford, Oxfordshire (Guide Dogs) and Cornwall (Cystic Fibrosis and Active8). The Cornwall trip was a regular part of our schedule for some years. We went at the same time (the late May Bank Holiday weekend) every other year - 2001, 2003, 2005 and 2007). In 2009, 2011 and 2013 we visited Norfolk, singing at churches to the south of Norwich, including Saxlingham Northgate, Bergh Apton, Sea Palling, Funundenhall, Langley and Topcroft Parish Church.

What We Do

We sing at a variety of events, some of which are described below. If required we can provide publicity flyers and posters (A4 and A3) and tickets. We usually provide programmes for our Concerts.

Full Concerts

Typically we sing three sets of songs interspersed with Solos in each half of a concert.

Guest Appearances

We are often asked to perform in others' concerts.

Charity Concerts

Many of our appearances are in aid of charity. Often it's a full concert with us as the only performers, such as our Cornwall concerts for Active8 and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Sometimes we are one of several contributors to the event. A good example is what has become an annual appearance in the Age Concern Celebration of Christmas at St. John's Cathedral, Salford.

We were formed to sing at a wedding in 1993 and have continued to provide this service several times a year ever since. We usually sing before the entry of the bride and during the Signing of the Register. Normally the music is chosen by the bride or her representative (i.e. Mum). Click the link below to se a couple of examples of our contributions to wedding services.
