This Saturday, 7th December, Malvern Male Voice Choir will be marking the Christmas season with Carols performed as part for the Barnard’s Green Magical Christmas celebrations. Alongside other local choirs and musicians, we will be singing festive songs to accompany the festivities.
This is just the beginning of a busy Christmas schedule which continues on Saturday 14th December when it performs at two venues. The choir will sing carols in the open air for shoppers in Great Malvern from 11.30 till 12.15 and, at 2.30 in the afternoon, presents its Christmas concert with Somers Park School at St Matthias Church, Malvern Link.
The Christmas Concert at St Matthias Church will be the culmination of a very varied and busy singing year for the choir. Charles Pavey, the Choir’s Musical Director said “ It’s great to be back at St Matthias again just before Christmas for this collaboration of two very different choirs. Such is the spirit of Christmas that some conductors give their choirs one of their own compositions to sing and this year will be no different. But more exciting is the first performance of music that David Cowell, teacher in charge of music at Somers Park School, has composed for both choirs to perform together.” A varied programme of seasonal songs and carols is guaranteed and this early, joyful Christmas celebration includes an opportunity for audience participation and seasonal food and drink to finish.
The Christmas Concert at St Matthias, Church Road, Malvern Link, starts at 2.30pm. Tickets, which cost £7 (18’s and Under Free) and include mulled wine and mince pies, can be purchased in advance from Martin Wheeler on 01684 573412. Any remaining can be purchased on the door.
If you are interested in singing in a choir then the Saturday (14th December) morning would be a good time to turn up to listen, meet and chat to some of the members of the Male Voice Choir when they appear in the Town Centre. The selection of the songs in the repertoire varies from the traditional to the contemporary but, at this time of year, you are guaranteed a good dose of Christmas cheer. The choir, now 91 years old, always encourages new members and would particularly like to hear from you if you are a first tenor.
