Deborah, Judy & Margaret - Version 2


Deborah Milledge - musical director

Deborah has been our musical director since September 2010. A busy singer and teacher of singing in South Cumbria, she has brought the choir back into the world of Festival competitions with victory at the South Cumbria Musical Festival in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015. Under her direction we are all developing as singers and enjoying the fresh challenges of new repertoire, including her own arrangements.




Margaret Harrison - accompanist

We are so lucky to have Margaret accompanying us! 

She is much in demand as a pianist, accompanying solo performers, choirs and amateur operatic societies. She is also a fine organist, being the organist for the joint congregations of the Methodist and United Reformed Churches in Dalton-in-Furness. 




Sad News

Mary passed away on 7 December 2016. The Ghyll Singers were invited to sing at the funeral and are looking forward to doing a fine job for Mary.

Mary Cox - founder member

Mary joined the choir at its foundation as a slip of a girl in 1941! After an absence from the choir during which she fitted in a busy career in school catering management she rejoined upon her retirement and has been back with us ever since. She recently celebrated her 98th birthday and is still a stalwart member of our soprano section.
