Our season seems to have started in earnest with a number of events during April, May and June.
We were unable to retain our Male Voice trophy at the Eskdale Festival, Whitby but were a very creditable fourth place in the open class of eleven choirs. However, we soon bounced back the following weekend at Bradford Grammar School, where we were among the invited performers at the "Northern Masonic Show" compered by Freddie (Parrot Face) Davis. The choir were on excellent form in front of a packed audience of over 450 guests.
On 5th May we will be at St. Luke's Parish Church in Overton Wakefield where choir members will also perform solo spots. This is a popular venue with the choir, especially the "mucky fat" sandwiches in the interval !! The following Tuesday, 15th May we are performing at Silcoates School, Wakefield.
The Patrons Concert is to be held at Sandal Methodist Church on Saturday 9th June at 7.30pm and features as our guest Ann Wilks, a 23 year old soprano who attends the Royal Northern College of Music.
We are pleased to announce that our new CD is now available. This is a joint venture with Penistone Ladies Choir and contains over 70 minutes of Christmas music. Copies are £10 and can be obtained from your choir contact, at any of our concerts or from Norman Bailey, our Patrons Secretary.
As always if you have family or friends who would like to become a patron or join the choir please get in touch.
