Belper-based Belcanto Male Chorus will be giving an extra performance of its show Only Remembered at Ashbourne Methodist Church on Friday, September 26, from 7.30pm.

The musical drama, put together by Belcanto member Neil Hartshorn, and inspired by the experiences of his grandfather, has been performed across the area recently to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

It has also been raising over £3,100 so far for Help For Heroes.

Tickets for the Ashbourne performance of Only Remembered can be obtained from Mrs Trilby Shaw, of 107 Mayfield Road, Ashbourne, DE6 1AS (Tel: 01335 300359).

BelCanto Male Chorus will be arranging a cheque handover in October for the total raised at all concerts.

BelCanto Male Chorus is based in Belper and aims to introduce audiences to the new génre of male choral music. BelCanto intends to make male voice singing an interesting, enjoyable and stimulating experience for those new to group singing and a new challenge to those already familiar with male voice choirs.

It rehearses each Tuesday from 7.45pm to 9.45pm in Belper Baptist Church, Bridge Street, Belper. New members are given a warm welcome.
