The Dukeries Singers & Newstead Abbey Singers Together

April 8, 2019

After many years of planning, we ____The Dukeries Singers , and the Newstead Abbey Singers eventually found a date and venue that suited both parties and arranged a joint Concert.



It was terrific!!


.  The Newstead Abbey Singers were only 13 in number but my word they made a powerful sound.

They sang all their pieces a cappella and I don't think they dropped even a semitone anywhere along the way.  Under the skilled direction of Nick Thorpe they produced a programme of song ranging from early 16C until the present day.  They are a very accomplished choir.  Vicky Thorpe,  accompanied by her husband Nick also played a very pretty flute solo.


The Dukeries Singers as always gave a varied programme of music.  Along with our two soloists, Sandra and Ash and a selection of feel good songs our audience was delighted as usual.


The joint items when the two Choirs sang together were a big success. It's a joy to sing with a larger ensemble and the two Choirs responded with enthusiasm. Maureen accompanied the Dukeries Singers set and also played the piano for all the joint items.


I heard lots of appreciative comments on the buffet which we provided , so many thanks to all concerned with providing and serving the goodies. 


I feel that all present at the Concert enjoyed a super evening of listening to and making music.  There was truly something for everyone and all the comments I heard were really positive.
