Welcome to the Home of Sonara Singers




We are an all female, non auditioning choir based at South Normanton, Derbyshire.

We love the friendship of singing together and invite anyone over the age of 16 to come and sing and give us a try.

Please contact us –

Sonara Singers consists of over 30 ladies, with great community spirit and a love of singing. 2023 has taken us from strength to strength with our Musical Director - Nicola Hunt a passionate and professional musician with 20 years experience.

We are excited to have a busy 2024 with events planned throughout the year - some in support of charities, some to showcase the extensive range of styles which we sing, and some singing with friends from other choirs.

Whilst we started the year with a great Sunday lunch together before starting back with rehearsals the following evening, our first performance will be at Kirkby Methodist Church on Saturday, 23rd March to help raise funds for a new roof - full details of all our upcoming events can be found on our Events page.

There were many highlights from 2023 as our Musical Director, Nicola Hunt, takes us from strength to strength.

Nicki’s aim with Sonara Singers is to provide inspiring and well balanced rehearsals to achieve an excellent and rewarding outcome for each singer and for the choir as a whole.

We are enjoying new challenges as Nicki embraces and expands the Sonara repertoire with energy and enthusiasm.

We have hosted the National Association of Choirs annual concert, performing with four other choirs from the East Midlands. We have helped to raise more than £1,000 for the food bank charity Hope for Belper with our friends from Rockabillies. We have enjoyed our annual performance at Ripley Musical Festival and have taken part in our "Come and Sing" event where we shared our learning experience with those looking for an enjoyable Saturday afternoon. This was followed in December by our Christmas Concert, which included a performance with Matlock Brass Band at St Andrew's Church in Swanwick, the Hearing Help Christmas Lunch and a performance for the residents and staff at the Ada Belfield Care Home.
