‘One of Cumbria's leading small choirs performing a wide variety of music throughout the county and more widely. Based in Carlisle we draw our membership of rather more than thirty singers from the city and the surrounding area. We are particularly renowned for the broad range of our repertoire, encompassing many musical genres and styles: sacred and secular, classical and popular, spanning choral music of six centuries with diversity from Bach to the Beatles. Since our foundation in 1962 we have been at the forefront of Cumbrian musical life and have maintained consistently high artistic standards. We perform a capella, with organ or piano accompaniment or with professional orchestras.’

The choir currently has about 55 mixed voices and a repertoire which includes both religious and secular music from the 15th to the 21st centuries. The choir gives two major concerts a year, in December and June ... Wigton Choral Society also forms a significant part of Cumbria Rural Choirs, who aim to perform a large-scale choral work each spring with professional orchestra, soloists and conductor ... Society members come from a wide area of north Cumbria, and new members are always welcome. Singing in a choir is a wonderful opportunity to have voice training, learn some of the gems of the choral repertoire, take part in quality performances - and make new friends. Singing also helps your breathing, your stress levels and your health, so if you read music and enjoy singing, bring your voice along and give it a go!‘

Carlisle Cathedral is an unforgettable concert venue. The building’s superb acoustics are ideal for both choral and instrumental performances ... One of the Cathedral Choirs sings at the main Sunday Eucharist in term time, with the Cathedral’s Voluntary Choir or a visiting choir covering many Sundays during the choir holidays. On six days a week Choral Evensong is sung by one of the Cathedral’s Choirs.‘
