'The origins can be traced back to 8 March 1942 when Cyril Smith gave the first of 31 concerts that were held from 1942 to 1946 (with a stunning array of artists). These concerts culminated in the formation of the Ilkley Concert Club at an open meeting held in the Ilkley Playhouse on 8 April 1946 and the first concert was given by Denis Matthews on the 28 August 1946 ... and the rest is history! ...'

‘A group of about 20 singers, some of whom are semi-professional and trained singers. We take our name from the little-known Victorian composer Ciro Pinsuti. Sacred and secular unaccompanied music forms the core of our performances, which are individually tailored to each venue and audience. We perform 4 - 5 concerts each year in the Wharfedale - Airedale area. We also enjoy singing at weddings and other events ... We vary in age; some of us currently work in such fields as education, medicine, various business and scientific professions and music, whilst others are retired, but equally busy.‘
