We are the Margaret Duckworth Singers; a mixed choir who take our name from our founder and Musical Director, Margaret Duckworth.
Most of our members come from the Dearne Valley but we also have members who are past and present students of Miss Duckworth from the wider Yorkshire area. We have been pleased to welcome new members into the choir which now total 40 and rehearse in St. Johnís Methodist Church, Swinton.
The main aim of our choir is to to make music together (something that we all enjoy) and from this, raise money for local groups and organisations. Up to the present day we have helped to raise thousands of pounds for many local Charities, Hospices, Hospitals and Churches.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas...
Margaret and the choir would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and healthy New Year.
Margaret would also like to thank everyone who has sent her Christmas cards for their kind thought and gesture and in return, please find below a printable image with a Christmas message from her and the choir.
Christmas Carols with Afternoon Tea - Cancelled
Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, it is with great sadness that we have had to cancel the planned festivities on Sunday 8th December 2019, to have been held at St. Margaret's Parish Church in Swinton.
This means that the choir will not be performing this year at Christmas.
We are always planning concerts and performances throughout the year, performing a varied repertoire; with music for all ages and tastes.
