Its members may be amateurs from many walks of life but they pride themselves on professional singing.
Throughout its long history, the Choir has performed almost every major choral work in the repertoire.
The Halifax Choral Society has always aimed high and has traditionally performed with first-rate orchestras, soloists and conductors.
Looking through the annals of the Society is to turn back the pages of musical history of the past two centuries.
