Weighton Waytes is a well established, mixed voice, community choir based in the lovely East Riding town of Market Weighton which is situated at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds.
Currently the choir has over 50 members and sings in four part harmony. Our members come from all walks of life; are of all age ranges and of a variety of musical ability. It is preferred that new members must be able to read music, have a love of singing and look to perform a wide range of music for the pleasure of others.
The choir meets each Wednesday evening at All Saints Church, Market Weighton and rehearsals commence promptly at 7:00pm closing at 8:30pm
Weighton Waytes takes part in around 40 performances annually across the East Riding of Yorkshire and further afield. In addition we sing at many weddings and some funerals. We also support Church services in Market Weighton and surrounding towns and villages when requested to do so.
The Choir are proud of the strong and warm fellowship that exists and work hard at maintaining a friendly relationship between all sections and all members. Necessarily the Choir travel extensively locally and there is an active car sharing arrangement for those who do not drive or are concerned about some of our rural destinations.
