This year’s annual English Association of Male Voice Choirs Annual Charity Concert took place in the beautiful setting of Worcester Cathedral last Saturday, and what a wonderful concert it was. Members of our choir joined forces with six other male voice choirs – Birmingham Icknield, Cirencester, Cradley Heath, Hadley Orpheus, Newport, Warley and Worcester – to perform a varied programme that was thoroughly enjoyed by a large audience.
In addition to the choirs, we were all entertained by several fine soloists – soprano Claire Bessent, organist Keith Hearnshaw and the Birmingham Horn Sound. The programme was compered by Lord Digby Jones, and the event was organised by members of the host choir, Worcester Male Voice Choir. It is a tribute to their hard work and expertise that it went so smoothly.
This year’s beneficiary charities were St Richard’s Hospice and Acorn’s Children’s Hospice, and they both received substantial payments from the proceeds of the concert. All in all, a great night for all present!
