The Spooky Men’s Chorale with Stephen Taberner,  Nottingham 2019

I’m pleased to tell you the Spooky Men will be returning to Nottingham on the evening of Friday 19th July to play once again in the lovely St. Mary’s Church, High Pavement.  This is the link for tickets https://www.gigantic.com/the-spooky-men-s-chorale-tickets/nottingham-st-mary-s-church/2019-07-19-19-00

The following morning, Saturday 20th July from 11 – 12.30, Stephen will be holding a workshop at St. Martin’s Church, Trevose Gardens, Sherwood.  If you would like to join us, please email me to put your name down.  The cost will be £10 unless you are coming to the gig, when it will be £7. It’s hard to describe Stephen’s sense of humour, or his excellent song choices, or the sound he can get out of any group of people .. you have to experience them!

Burford ‘Come and Sing’ Day

Burford Singers are holding a Come and Sing event on Saturday September 28th 2019 at Burford School. We are delighted to have our inspirational musical director Brian Kay hosting the day.

We shall be singing some wonderfully joyful music from Great Handel Choruses including movements from Acis and Galatea, Israel in Egypt, Messiah, Judas Maccabaeus, Solomon, Alexander’s Feast and of course, Zadok the Priest. The day will also include Bob Chilcott’s Singing By Numbers.

Everyone is welcome irrespective of singing ability or experience. Your music will be provided on the day and is included in the ticket price.

This a great opportunity to enjoy some well-loved works as well as some exciting new songs by Bob Chilcott so we do hope you will join us. We look forward to welcoming you on the day! A booking form can be found on our website: burfordsingers.org.uk


Musicians Wanted!

Since its formation in 1996, Ashby Concert Band has grown to become one of the foremost concert bands in the East Midlands, with over 50 committed and enthusiastic woodwind, brass and percussion players. However, due to people moving away, we find ourselves in need of more musicians- prominently trumpets/cornets and a tuba player. We would also welcome any trombonists, bassoon and kit players who would like to join too. We rehearse on Monday evenings from 7:30-9:30pm at Holy Trinity Church in Ashby de la Zouch, taking a break for socialising and a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits (or very often, cake!)

Through a regular programme of high quality concerts, often raising money for local charities, the Band entertains its audiences through a wide musical repertoire, including classics, original works for bands, film music and music from the musicals. We draw large audiences and have played at venues across the East Midlands, on tours in the UK and Europe and of course, in Ashby de la Zouch itself.

If you are of grade 5 or above standard (you do not need to have taken the exam) and are interested in joining or would like more information, please contact Adrian Ashton (Musical Director) on ashbyconcertband@gmail.net or find us on Facebook.


MEN WANTED!

The Cranmer Company of Singers is looking for a few additional tenors and basses to join us for an exciting year of singing. Whilst we are particularly looking for a few more men, we would also welcome enquiries from altos and sopranos.

We are a welcoming, friendly choir who have a lot of fun socially whilst singing absolutely wonderful music in brilliant venues around the U.K. and abroad. This year we have been asked to sing at Beverley Minster, Tewkesbury Abbey and at the Bazilika in Budapest! In addition to this we will host our annual Good Friday charity ‘Come & Sing’ at Bottesford Church, this year singing the powerful and beautiful Mozart ‘Requiem’. Everyone is welcome to join us for this event. We also put on concerts in the local area, sometimes with an orchestra which is always very exciting.

Come along and join us for a few rehearsals to see how you get along!

Please contact Deborah Davies on 01949 851030 or 0775 909 1160 or email cranmercompany@googlemail.com for more information or just to have a chat about the possibility of joining us.
