The Pye Hill and District Male Voice Choir will be in concert at Forest Town Methodist Church, Clipstone Road West, on Saturday, May 10, at 7.30 p.m to mark the church’s 109th anniversary.

The Pye Hill and District Male Voice Choir first began life in 1903 and is two years older than the church, so there is an irony in the fact this will be their first concert at Forest Town Methodist Church ever.

The choir is one of the oldest male voice choirs in the country and has a rich history as a prize-winning choir and is still going strong today with a full programme of concerts arranged for 2014, including a tour to Norfolk, and already taking bookings for 2015.

The concert includes Stout Hearted Men, I Believe, You Raise Me Up, Kings of Swing Medley, May It Be, Jamaica Farewell, Pedro the Fisherman, The Rose and many more.

A number of solos will also be performed including: No Other Love Have I – Bill Walker (baritone), The Wedding of Lilli Marlene – Frank Akers (bass) and You’ll Never Walk Alone – Collin Dutton (enor) with chorus from the choir.

Entry to the concert is by ticket which are available at £5 for adults and £3 for young people up to the age 16, direct from the church, from Edith Levick on 01623 643411 or Malcolm Hill on 07706 036946. Tickets may be reserved to be collected at the door of the church on the evening of the concert.

The choir are always pleased to welcome new members.

Why not come to the concert and make yourself known or turn up at practise on Monday evening at 7.30 p.m at the Dale Club, Jacksdale.
