President’s Charity Concert with Sonara Singers at Q.E.A., Mansfield
May 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£10
Mr. David Marriott, our choir President, is pleased to announce that the choir will be staging a concert for Hetty’s, David is a most compassionate character as demonstrated in the help he gives not only to our choir, but to his church as well as running the famous Sally Twinkle’s haberdashery shop in Mansfield. David mentioned that Hetty’s would be an ideal candidate for us to support. They rely solely on donations and here is an excerpt from their website to explain what they do :-
If you’re worried about a loved one’s alcohol or drug use, or are struggling to manage everyday life because of the effects of this substance use on your family, then Hetty’s are here to help. There is no judgement here at Hetty’s, just a listening ear from someone who understands, a shoulder to cry on, and the offer of some practical tools and skills that you can use to improve your situation and regain control of your life. We can also help you if you have taken responsibility for a child who can no longer live with their birth parents due to substance misuse. Please don’t suffer alone, we support over 200 families per month who are experiencing the same feelings as you, addiction really is a family disease.
What a great evening this will be. Sonara Singers are a quality, all ladies choir hailing from South Normanton and consist of over 50 ladies, with great community spirit and a love of singing. They are well known in their county of Derbyshire and raise significant sums for charities. During the difficult year 2020 their Musical Director Gemma Marshall keeps the members busy with recordings for members to rehearse and ensured that the choir spirit remains alive. Mansfield and District Male Voice choir have sung many concerts with Sonara and so we expect the concert to be a wonderful event blend both male and female voices in song.
The venue is one of the male voice choir’s favorites; the venerable hall of the Queen Elizabeth’s Academy where in the school was inaugurated in 1561 in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. The building itself is of Victorian origin (opened 1877). The Assembly Hall at QEA has a lovely high ceiling with good acoustics and is a fantastic place to sing.
