The Choir:

On 12th February 1912, the "Cradley Heath, Old Hill and District Male Voice Choir"  as it was originally known, was founded in Whitley Memorial School, Cradley Heath. The choir has been in existence continuously, even through two world wars. There are now only a few male choirs in England that have survived for a longer period of time. Participation in competitive singing was, for many years, a regular feature of the choir's activities and numerous prizes were won at local  and national music festivals.  Nowadays however, the emphasis  is mainly on concert work. Many worthy causes have benefited financially from the efforts of the choir, whose aim is :

 

"To foster the love of good music,

entertain the general public

and assist charitable organisations".
