A “hot” Concert – The Hill at Kirkby

Not only was the weather pleasant, if not, very warm for singing, the concert was a hot and a quality performance by the choir fresh from our Royal Albert Hall appearance at the end of April.

The choir entertained a capacity audience at The Hill Methodist Church in Kirkby in Ashfield in support of their roof repair fund. The concert was organised a part of a series of summer events at the church by Karen Grice (the sister-in-law of our MD) and it was lovely to perform as a solo choir which gave opportunity to two soloists (Dan Hayes and Anthon Bramley – well done guys) and our accompanists Margaret and Maureen (very well done indeed) and our octet the GentleMen. We performed an eclectic mix of music from Dvorak to Coldplay and from Welsh hymns to African traditional music, all of which made for an enjoyable evening. That is what the audience told us after the concert, many of whom were asking about tickets for future concerts, particularly our major male voice festival concert at Southwell Minster on 5th October to celebrate our 80th anniversary.

    Afterwards at Weatherspoon’s we continued entertaining the masses, and judging by their response, they enjoyed listening to us, as much as we did singing to them. What a brilliant evening of entertainment.
