'Singing in amateur choirs continues to be extraordinarily popular across the country. There are many choirs located across the North West region alone, ranging in size from small harmony ensembles to full-scale, semi-professional choirs such as the Halle. There also exist many local music festivals in which there is sometimes a choral element. However, with the exception of the (national) bi-annual BBC 'Choir of the Year' competition, there aren't many local or regional competitions for amateur choirs.
The Manchester Amateur Choral Competition seeks to readdress this imbalance by establishing an annual competition in which choirs from across and beyond the region are invited to compete in a spirit of creativity and community.' Held Mid February.

'Music plays a large part in the life of St Ann's Church. Concerts and recitals are frequent events and we have regular performances of chamber music and piano recitals by students of the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) ... The organ, which dates from 1730, was originally on the West Gallery. It has grown over the years and is now a fine instrument with 54 speaking stops on which recitals are given every week. It was rebuilt by George Sixsmith & Co of Mossley in 1996.'
