What an incredible week it has been! Two very different performances this weekend – on Friday we performed “Voices at the Cathedral”, and on Saturday we sang at Dore & Totley United Reformed Church. Both events helped to raise funds for local charities, and we’ll post an update on here once we’ve got the final totals in. Musically speaking, both concerts were a real success. It was great to contrast the intimacy of the Dore & Totley event with the grandeur of Sheffield Cathedral, and it was so gratifying to hear the dedication that each singer brought to both events. We had some top quality solo, duet and small ensemble singing, to match the passion of the choir numbers – it really has shown what a dynamic, varied and interesting bunch we are!
As we’re coming to the end of our Summer season (still a few more performances to go!), here are the dates for the Autumn – we’ll start again on Monday 10th September in Wakefield, Tuesday 11th in Nottingham, Wednesday 12th in Barnsley and Thursday 13th in Sheffield. Those singers taking part in “Picnic and Pavarotti at the Priory” and/or “Bestwood MVC Diamond Jubilee Concert”, there’s a top-up rehearsal to remind you of the Summer season music on Saturday 8th September – more details to follow by email. The last sessions of the Autumn season will be on Monday 26th November in Wakefield, Tuesday 27th in Nottingham, Wednesday 28th in Barnsley and Thursday 29th in Sheffield. We are still working out the details of performances at the end of next season – we’ll definitely have performances in each area, in addition to our combined event in Buxton, but we haven’t worked out exactly when or where these will be just yet – we’ll keep you posted.
Finally, the song list for the Autumn is now finalised – follow this link to find out what you’ll be letting yourself in for!
