For the best of Male Voice singing in North Staffordshire
Come and join us
Singing in a choir is a very rewarding hobby which gives great satisfaction both in rehearsal and performance. We carry out between 10-15 concerts per year and rehearse on a Monday evening from 7:15 - 9:15, (see our contact page for details of the venue.) We have had a surge in membership over the last few months so have had to institute a waiting list for membership. Any new members sit with established members of the choir and after around 3 months are asked to show that they can hold a line before being invited to join permanently.
Sept 6th. Sandon Hall
Oct. 7th. Whitmore Village Hall, (Don Lawton memorial concert)
Our recent ‘mini tour’ of the North West, taking in concerts at Ambleside, Dumfries and Newton Stewart was a great success, and we had the great pleasure at the latter two concerts of sharing the stage with Robyn Stapleton, winner of the BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musician of the Year in 2014.
Robyn’s beautiful music provided a lovely contrast to our own programme, particularly in the lovely acoustics of Crichton memorial church at Dumfries.
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of our friend, Baritone and erstwhile compere John Hall at the tragically early age of 51.
Ex Royal Navy, John loved singing, both with the choir and with a number of local amateur theatre companies. Our thoughts are with his daughters Bryony and Lydia.
We will miss him greatly.
Unfortunately we have another death to announce; that of Roy Woolley, an ex chorister who sang with the choir from its’ early days up to 2013 when ill health forced his retirement. Roy was a lovely man with an excellent Bass voice and will be remembered fondly by all who knew him. Our sympathies go out to his family.
