A little information about the DALESMEN



The Choir was formed in 1987 by a small band of enthusiasts in the Derbyshire Dales, the main aim being to enjoy singing together and to add to the musical life of the area. Since that time the Choir has grown into a highly successful group of choristers from around beautiful Derbyshire.

 


A founder member and Past President of the Choir is the Rev Reg Dean, who past away

At the age of 110 and 63 days in January 2013



The Choir rehearses weekly at the Strutts Centre, Belper, throughout the year, under their Musical Director Richard Hayward, Deputy MD John Lloyd and Accompanists Bill Templeman and Patricia Affleck who together, ensure that the Choir maintains a full and varied programme of music, rehearsed to a very high standard.



The Choir performs at around thirty events annually, supporting a wide range of charities and increasing its good reputation and popularity both on the concert platform and concert arena.



In recent years the Choir has undertaken Concert Tours to Aberporth, Pembroke, Barnstaple, the Isle of Wight, the Dordogne region of France, Clonmel in County Tipperary, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk and Harleston, Norfolk, Bodmin, Penzance  the Eden Project and recently Llandudno.



The Choir has twice shared the concert stage with the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines School of Music in Derby Cathedral, with The Band of The Grenadier Guards at Derby Assembly Rooms and with The Syd Lawrence Orchestra on two occasions. The Syd Lawrence Orchestra is led by our Past President's son, Christopher Dean.






The Choir now rehearses every
