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...and a Happy New Year
span>We wanted to take this opportunity to apologise for the lack of updates and engagements with the choir over the past 12 months. As with everyone, we have all in some way been affected by the current COVID epidemic and as a result the choir has been "on haitus". We are unsure on what the future may hold but for the moment, Margaret and the choir would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and healthy New Year. Please stay safe and take care and we will keep you updated via the site on any news regarding the choir in 2021.
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 Christmas message from her and the choir.
