“What a difference a day makes!” As I write, yesterday was slushy snow and seemingly no end to winter and today we have glorious sunshine and the temptation to leave off a couple of thermal layers. However, The Dukeries Singers have only missed one practise night due to inclement weather. Far flung members travel from Newark, Worksop, Mansfield Woodhouse, Warsop and Mansfield — and all points between in order to make music together. What a hardy and loyal set of singers.
The choir rehearses every Wednesday evening from 7.30pm to 9.15pm in the Concert Hall at The Dukeries Academy in Ollerton. This is best accessed via the Leisure Centre entrance and car park. You can find out more about the choir on www.thedukeriessingers.com and on Facebook, Twitter and on YouTube.
Sunday 22nd April — The choir is singing to celebrate St George’s Day at St Giles’ Church in Old Ollerton. This is a great family fun day and the singers can indulge in performing all the patriotic songs they can find.
Saturday 12th May — A concert at Farndon Parish Church.
There are still three engagements to confirm with Weston Church, a joint concert with Newstead Abbey Singers and the RAFA Club Newark. Please contact Concert Secretary Phil on 01623 822070 if you would like to book the choir for your fundraising, charity or celebration event. He would be delighted to hear from you.
