Capricorn Singers

Say hello to this ladies voice choir from Cleveleys who have been entertaining in the Fylde since 1984.

The Capricorn Singers is made up of three part female voices - higher Sopranos, mid-range Mezzo Soprano and lower Contralto.

Led by our Musical Director Chrissie Turkington, we currently have around 25 singers and are accompanied by our experienced and very talented pianist Ian Whalley.


Ladies, do you enjoy singing?
Why not join the Capricorn Singers?

The Capricorn Singers, one of the Fylde Coast’s most exciting amateur ladies choirs, are currently recruiting for Altos; ladies who sing in a similar range to Adele, Amy Winehouse and Alison Moyet.

To achieve our high quality of singing, we ask for members to commit to attending rehearsals once a week (Wednesday evening) and, using the practice materials provided along with the support of a Section Leader, demonstrate a dedication to learning music for performances throughout the year.

Members are not expected to be music readers as rehearsal tracks are made available, but it can be an advantage. 

Membership is via a very simple one-to-one voice test on the fourth week of attendance and costs just £3 per week.

Autumn / Winter rehearsals start on 3rd August.

Rehearsals are held at Cleveleys Park Methodist Church School Rooms accessed from Stockdove Way (off West Drive), Thornton-Cleveleys, FY5 2AP.  There is a large free car park with disabled parking.

If you are interested in joining us, or would like more information then please contact us:

More about the Capricorn Singers

New members are always welcome to join. You can come along to rehearsals and, if you like what you see and hear, become one of the singers.

It doesn't matter if you don't read music. A lot of our ladies don't. 

The skills you need are an ability to sing, along with enthusiasm and commitment to the group, and to be able to perform at concerts and events through the year. Don’t worry if you’ve never been in a choir before, you will soon learn the ropes.

It’s a ‘soft joining’ process, where over a four week period you get to know the choir, and the choir get to know you. Your membership is dependent on a simple one-to-one voice test during that time. There’s a small annual membership fee collected in either 1 yearly payment, 3 instalments throughout the year; Feb, May and Sept; or monthly.


You can also book the choir for your own special event:

The Capricorn Singers pride themselves in committing their performance songs to memory. This means that they have a rolling programme of music titles to choose from, even though they may have one or two favourites which remain with the programme longer than others.

Performances are usually two acts of 45 minutes for a Full Concert or one act of 60 minutes for a Short Concert. This can be changed to suit your event.

They also sing at Weddings to entertain the congregation as they enter church or registered venue, in addition they can join in with the ceremony hymns and when it comes to the special moment of signing the register, sing one or two special songs just for the happy couple.
