THE CONONLEY SINGERS perform on 16th May 2020 The Cononley Singers was formed in March 2010 when a group of villagers got together with the intention of starting some sort of singing group. Following a modest start, the choir grew steadily in both number and musical expertise and currently numbers around 50, male and female, with a wide range in both age, and musical ability.
