Best of British music will be performed in fine voice at a special St George’s Day choir concert in Worksop.
The Musicality Singers, a choir made up of members of Worksop and District U3A, are currently rehearsing for the show entitled This England.
Singers of all ranges and abilities make up the community choir who will take to the stage at The Crossing on Wednesday 23rd April.
Among their repertoire are popular songs by everyone from Gershwin to the Beatles.
And they are all performed with a great deal of passion and humour under the direction of professional musician and musical director Greg Watson.
“The choir has developed a sound all of its own,” said Greg. “The choir’s dedication, enthusiasm, and sense of fun make it a pleasure both to listen to and to be part of.”
Along with accompanist Peter Colby the choristers have been building their reputation and repertoire in the community.
Performances for local charity and community groups have been well received, and a paid gig at The Acorn Theatre just before Christmas was sold out.
Said spokesman and choir member Malcolm Fritchley: “The concert was a sell out success with the choir being called on for an encore.”
“Feedback was overwhelmingly positive. People were asking when they could see the choir again.”
The St George’s Day concert will feature a range of English music from across the centuries, from Greensleeves - said to have been written by Henry VIII - through to Jerusalem, the Beatles and to ELO’s upbeat classic Mr Blue Sky.
In keeping with the choir’s sense of fun it will also include songs sung at sporting venues, such as We Are The Champions Swing Low Sweet Chariot.
And everyone’s favourite, Always Look on the Bright Side of Life from Monty Python’s Life of Brian.
Tickets are £5 and are available from the welcome desk at The Crossing on Newcastle Street, Worksop.
The show on 23rd April starts at 7.30pm.
