Malvern Male Voice Choir will be holding its popular annual fund-raising concert, jointly organised with The Malvern Committee of Cancer Research UK, on Saturday 6 April, 2019. Entitled “Come on and Hear” it follows a successful “Come and Sing” event earlier in the year. Sharing the stage with the Malvern Male Voice Choir will be The Chase School Chamber Choir whose special contribution will add to a very varied programme of music. The concert starts at 7.30 p.m. and is being staged at St Edmund’s Hall, College Road, Malvern, WR14 3DF.
The concert programme will include songs from films and musicals, some classics from the 19th & 20th centuries contrasting with pop hits from later in the 20th century, folks songs and other traditional music from England and Ireland, a couple of American jazz-orientated numbers and other male voice choir favourites. During the interval refreshments will be served and there will be the usual Malvern Committee raffle with multiple attractive prizes.
Tickets, which cost £10 (18s & under — £4) and include the interval refreshments, can be bought in advance by telephoning 01684 89772 or can be bought at Burley’s Hairdressers, Worcester Rd, opposite The Unicorn Pub, in Great Malvern town centre; remaining tickets will also be available on the door.
Malvern Male Voice Choir’s conductor, Charles Pavey, commented: “The concert’s title, ‘Come on and Hear’, which comes from the song ‘Alexander’s Ragtime Band’, follows a ‘Come and Sing’ evening which the Choir held in January; during this event a good number of new members were successfully recruited, amongst them some very experienced singers. And it is great to be able to have a choir from The Chase School with us again this year – I heard The Chase Chamber Choir at the School’s Carol Service last year and its clear, balanced sound will offer an appealing contrast to a now enlarged male voice choir. We hope that a large audience will come along and enjoy a fine evening for a good cause.”
