This informal weekly group has been going, in one form or another, since 1991, led by Faith throughout.
The group has a number of long-standing members, yet a constant flow of new members, returning ‘old’ members and occasional visitors, keeps it fresh and thoroughly enjoyable. Just like Shylarks, we sing a variety of songs, including some from the standard acapella repertoire, original songs and arrangements, jazz, soul, folk, pop, songs from around the world… whatever takes our fancy. We’re not a performance group, but we occasionally find ourselves getting together with other singing groups for a joint sing, supporting local events or marking significant moments in members’ lives. New members are welcome at any time. No experience is necessary and you don’t need to be able to read music. We’re currently trying out a few different venue options so email Faith to get the details on how we’re managing sessions as we make our way back indoors!
The new term starts on Tuesday 21st September 2021.
Time: 7 – 9pm (currently 7-8pm)
Location: Email Faith to check where we’re meeting, as we’re trying out a few different options currently.

Usually, you’re very welcome just to turn up any Tuesday evening we’re meeting but at the moment, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how we’re managing the return to indoor singing.

“Singing for Larks – the name says it all really – making lovely music with other singers and having lots of fun – aided and abetted by the talented Faith Watson. Singing with the Manchester Larks group is always a rewarding experience, including outbursts of hilarity as well as magical meditative moments when our voices truly blend together. It’s great to learn new songs each term as well as revisiting old favourites and although some songs can be quite a challenge, there’s a real sense of achievement when we master them. What more can I say? It’s just the best way I know of spending a Tuesday evening!”
