Apologies for a long absence.Tonight’s concert at Gnosall will be our third in five weeks,and it promises to be very warm!!

The concert with The Darby Singers at the Anstice Hall in Madeley, was a great success.Both choirs performed exceptionally well, and it was really interesting to see the different types of music, and contrasting styles.Particularly pleasing was the enthusiastic response from both choirs to the performances of the other choir.!!

Briefly, after tonight our next concert will be at Wheaton Aston on Sept !st, followed by  a concert with Tamworth Ladies at the Methodist Church in Shifnal on the 6th of October.

We have a joint concert with Cosford Military Wives  at the Village Hall in Shifnal on December 1st.

Always looking for more members and more concerts.

We have a new Chairman in Mike Ward, and a new and enthusiastic new committee raring to go!!

Bishops Wood-June24th

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

After a long break from concerts,since the concert with Jackfield Band at Oakengates in early April,it was really great to entertain an enthusiastic audience  at St.John’s Church in Bishops Wood last night.The programme was a wide and varied one, supplemented with two piano recitals from Anne and Jade.

The church is always a delight to sing in,and on a lovely summer evening, what could be better than lifting the rafters with a range of uplifting music with some new items added, as well as well-loved classics from the repertoire.

We have a busy couple of weeks coming up, at  St. Lawrence Church ,Gnosall  on Saturday , July 1st, and Christ Church RC in Wellington on July 15th.

It made a big difference having Jade back with us last night-here’s hoping we can go from strength to strength in the  coming months!!

Brass Band Magic

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

At “The Place ” in Oakengates last night, a large audience was treated to an evening of excellent music, including tremendous brass from Jackfield Band , and a varied repertoire from Shinal MVC. The audience were enthusiastic in their appreciation of all the items and enthusiastic in their own participation.

Great thanks are due to The Telford Lions Club for their organisation and financial support for the event

It was really wonderful for the choir to perform in a rather different environment, and infront of a very large and welcoming audience.Hopefully they recognised that the choir does have a wide repertoire which is not typically traditional”Male Voice” in its make-up.


Great return concert with Warley

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Last night in Shifnal Village Hall we welcomed Warley MVC who entertained us a year or so ago.

Thankfully the hall was full, despite some gloomy forecasts about ticket sales,and the audience were treated to a wide variety of choral music including joint items from the two choirs, some barbershop items from a smaller Warley group, and a couple of piano recitals for good measure.

The audience response was enthusiastic, even resulting in a standing ovation at the end!

It was really interesting for us to work with a similar group to our own, and there is no doubt that there is something special about the sound produced by a combined total of fifty voices.

Hopefully a good sum was raised for the two local charities we were supporting-Shifnal Old People’s Welfare Committee and the Live at Home Charity.

Upcoming dates include a concert with Jackfield Band on Thursday April 6th at the theatre in Oakengates, and concerts  at Bishop’s Wood on June 24th, and Gnosall on July 1st .

Any new members will be very welcome!
