Sunday afternoon is not our usual time for a concert nor is the Octagon in Sandbeds, Keighley a typical venue for us. However last year’s concert with Ladies Choir, Opus 44 at the same time and place had been such a success, we definitely lookedforward to repeating the experience.
Opus 44 are a highly accomplished choir and their well-chosen programme showed them at their very best, and the more robust (and definitely more masculine!) qualities of Steeton MVC made for an extremely well-balanced concert, much-appreciated by the full and enthusiastic audience.
The concert closed by the two choirs joining forces in Handel’s Hallelujah chorus and considering we had never sung this together before (not even to practice) it went extremely well.
We really look forward to singing with Opus 44 again soon!
Do make a point of coming to our ever-popular end-of-year concert in Skipton Parish Church (the one at the top of the High Street). The choir will be singing some of our favourite pieces (plus some new ones!).
There will also be seasonable refreshments in the form of wine and mince pies. Plus, the audience will have the opportunity to sing with the choir in a few well-loved carols.
Tickets are obtainable from our Concert Secretary.
