For the best of Male Voice singing in North Staffordshire

‘Those who wish to sing always find a song’.

Come and join us

We are always looking for new members, particularly in the Bass and First Tenor sections. If you’ve never sung in a choir before, don’t worry, it’s a very easy going atmosphere and you don’t have to audition, just come along and sit with established members who will help you to acclimatise. It’s a very rewarding hobby which gives great satisfaction both in rehearsal and performance. We carry out between 6 -10 concerts per year and rehearse on a Monday evening from 7:15 - 9:15, see our contact page for details of the venue.

Recent News

The Daleians are sad to announce the death of our President Dai (Islwyn) Rees, 92, who passed away peacefully in the presence of his daughter Sian on Friday 16 September. Dai, who was a teacher, and subsequently Headteacher, at several north Staffordshire schools, joined the Choir in 1961 as a member of the first tenors. He last appeared with The Daleian Singers on the stage of the Victoria Hall, Hanley in 2007. Dai not only sang: he was the Choir’s compère and Secretary for many years, roles which he undertook with perfection. His legendary ‘black-edged’ letters, synonymous with his strict adherence to individual commitment, are legendary in the memories of long-serving choristers, although he himself never admitted having sent any!

Dai had a long and happy marriage to Pat but, after her death, Dai enjoyed companionship with Rita, a friend from childhood. Despite his failing health in recent years, Dai and Rita often joined the Choir at functions whenever they could, another reflection on his personal maxim of commitment. His presence and loyalty will be sorely missed in the years to come.

The Choir extends its deepest sympathy to Sian and her family at this time.
