On Friday 31 July 2015 at 7.30pm the Newport (Salop) & District Male Voice Choir performed their Voices In Harmony Concert at St Matthews Church, Donnington Wood, Telford, in aid of church funds.
A program of popular, classical and religious songs was sung during this two hours concert by our choir, under the musical direction of Vivian Redfern and accompanied by pianist Mike Ward and his wife Jo.
A solo performance of Standing on the Corner, and Nat King Cole’s Let There Be Love was sung by choir member, and church congregation member David Tooth. Additionally, choir member Bill Corfield sang Glen Campbell’s Rhinestone Cowboy and It Only Takes a Moment from the show, Hello Dolly. A comical rendition of Offenbach’s Gendarmes Duet was given by choir members David Barnett and Mike Hallam.
All of these performances were greatly appreciated by the audience.
Audience member Molly Baxter said, “I loved the old and new songs. My Granddad, who is no longer with us, would always come to the choir concerts and he would have really enjoyed tonight’s concert.”
The concert was well supported by a sizeable audience, and a raffle draw was held during the interval, to add to the fundraising for the church. We hope that a large sum of money was raised through this event, to help with the costs of upkeep at this lovely church.
Every year Newport (Salop) & District Male Voice Choir helps to raise significant sums of money for charitable causes, and we are always pleased to receive requests for assistance in the form of charity fundraising performances. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are involved in a charity that you think may benefit from our support.
