The Dukeries Singers St. George's Day blog

On Sunday 22th.April,we sang at St. Giles' Church in Ollerton for their St. George's Day celebrations. We fielded a large Choir as we have many seriously committed members. It was good to be singing for an audience "In Concert" as we all love performing. I think we all enjoyed the afternoon, audience and singers both. We sang a very varied programme with music ancient and modern including a lovely solo from Vera and some rousing patriotic songs to finish, including flags! So something for everyone. I understand that the whole annual event was a huge success and it was a pleasure to be invited and to be able to take part in such a happy and joyous occasion. I do hope that the Dragon wa

St George's Day

Our first engagement of this term began with singing in St Giles church Ollerton for the celebration of St George's Day. It was a lovely warm day and we were packed rather tightly together and standing precariously on some tables. We enjoyed singing our programme with our challenging Hallelujah Chorus and How Great thou Art going down well and then we finished with some patriotic songs, Land of Hope and Glory, Jerusalem and Rule Britannia greatly received. Our next concerts are, Farndon Church 12th May and our Summer concert at the Jubilee Hall 23rd June, Weston Church 7th July, Milton Mausoleum 21st July

April Update

"What a difference a day makes!" Yesterday slushy snow and seemingly no end to Winter and today we have glorious sunshine and the temptation to leave off a couple of thermal layers. However we have only missed one practise night due to inclement weather. Our far flung members travel from Newark, Worksop, Mansfield Woodhouse Warsop and Mansfield and all points between in order to make music together. What a hardy and loyal set of singers. We rehearse every Wednesday evening from 7-30pm. until 9-15pm. in the Concert Hall at The Dukeries Academy in Ollerton. This is best accessed via the Leisure Centre entrance and car park. You can find out more about the Choir on our website. www.t
