Ladies Please have been providing the finest musical entertainment across the district for the past 11 years. So far we have helped raise about £10,000 for good causes.
HIRE THE CHOIR
Ladies Please are available to perform throughout Wharfedale and beyond. Our focus is on entertaining as a means of charitable fundraising but we can also be hired for weddings and other events
We are always looking for new talent, and we currently have vacancies for two strong sopranos and an alto. Contact us now if you are interested, we don't bite!
We sing a wide range of secular and non-secular music from arrangements of pop songs and musicals to music hall favourites and Christmas carols. Much of our music has been arranged for ladies voices (unison, two-part, three-part and four-part harmonies) by our former musical director, and he also composed some songs for himself. We will tackle most tunes, and include a variety in each concert programme. Sometimes it is possible to sing a specific tune that you want when invited to perform for special events such as weddings.
