The Choir was recently invited to
join with members of other choirs at a full day of singing
under the direction of the composer John Rutter.John Rutter has written a vast
amount of music for choirs and his work is particularly
heard at Christmas time for which he has written some
beautiful songs and carols.
Six ladies took up the challenge
and toddled off to Southwell with our packed lunches and
throat lozenges to join with 310 other voices in what was an exhilarating and
joyous experience. To sing with so many others was a
pleasure but to have so many men singing was amazing.
Their lovely harmonies gave such a depth and richness of
sound to which the ladies could confidently add their
course, is my usual ask, for more Gentlemen to join our
Choir. We are a very friendly group of people and you
would be made most welcome. There are no auditions and no
necessity to read music, just come along to rehearsal and
give it a try. Ladies are also always welcome of
We meet every
Wednesday evening from 7-30pm until 9-15pm in the Concert
Hall at the Dukeries Academy in Ollerton. This is best
accessed by the Leisure Centre entrance and car park.
