Saltaire Sing


Music lovers of a different persuasion are also well-catered for at Saltaire Festival, since several local community choirs get together to perform.  They all 'busk' around the village during the day and then hold a concert in the late afternoon in Saltaire's United Reformed Church.  I wasn't able to discover the name of this choir (anybody know?) but they were making a cheerful sound, delighting those listening in the grounds of the church.  It's a pity I can't sing (too deaf) as it seems a lovely, healthy pastime - social and creative.  It's hard to sing and feel glum at the same time.

  1. I am struck with how "American" this shot is. Denim has truly conquered the world.

  3. I don't sing in a choir, but I can see that the members of this chorus are enjoying their efforts (Interesting observation about the denim . . . )

  4. In our next lives, jenny, we'll be able to sing. I am tone deaf and used to frighten my children when I tried to sing in the car. I still sing when I know I'm alone...
