The Chanterelles

The Chanterelles are a group of women in their 20s and 30s drawn together by their love of singing, under the direction of Dr Shirley Court. Since 2009 they have impressed both audiences and adjudicators alike with their professional approach and clear enjoyment for the music they sing, with a diverse repertoire which spans genres and showcases the rich sounds they make.

Their considerable achievements include winning the women’s choirs sections at the Isle of Man Festival of Choirs 2013, the North Wales Choral Festival in 2011 and the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in 2010. The choir was named ‘most entertaining choir’ at the final of the Isle of Man Festival of Choirs. In May 2012 the Chanterelles travelled to Cork, Ireland, to compete for the Fleischmann International Trophy at the Cork Choral Festival.

They recently recorded tracks for their new CD, which is now available to buy either by contacting or by attending any of our concerts.

The Chanterelles are extremely excited to announce that they have been accepted to take part in both The Fleischmann International Trophy competition in Cork and the Llangollen International Eisteddfod this year, please come along and support us if you can.
