Becoming a member of the choir

Join the Otley Choral Society and experience the joy of singing choral music together, make lasting friendships, and contribute to our vibrant musical community.   We are a four-part choir with around eighty members, drawn from Otley and the surrounding area.  

We combine with our sister society, Ilkley Choral Society, to perform concerts and are fortunate to perform 4 concerts to sing in each season! 

No auditions are required to join as we welcome singers of all levels and experience. As long as you have a passion for singing and a desire to perform alongside others, you would be most welcome.  If you are less experienced, we will endeavour to pair you with someone in your early weeks so you can become more confident and enjoy the experience of singing.  

Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings between 7pm and 9pm at Prince Henry’s Grammar School, Farnley Lane, Otley LS21 2BB.  There is ample parking available, and level access can be arranged if this is necessary. 

Membership costs for the 2022-23 season were £130 and could be subject to change for the 2023-24 season. There are a variety of ways you can pay for your membership. Case by case concessions can be made to the membership subscription where appropriate.  With your membership, you would also be welcome to attend the Ilkley Choral Society rehearsals on Monday evenings. 

Open rehearsals begin on Tuesday 5th and 12th September 2023 for this season. If you would like any further information, please get in touch with us by emailing 

Unleash your passion for singing and be part of an extraordinary musical journey.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the choir!
