Thurnscoe Harmonic Male Voice Choir are coming to St Swithun’s Parish Church Retford, just a day before St Swithun’s Day, on Saturday 14th July.
This prestigious choir, founded in 1924 have visited Retford Parish Church many years ago when the late Colin Leach was the Musical Director for both the Thurnscoe Harmonic and the Retford Male Voice Choir.
Thurnscoe Harmonic MVC have a long and proud history. They have won hundreds of prizes and awards at music festivals, broadcast on many occasions and toured in Holland, Germany and Malta — and recently in Northern Ireland, singing in the Ulster Hall and Stormont Palace.
Now under the inspired leadership of Tony Jermy, the choir will fill the wonderful church with the renowned “Thurnscoe Sound”.
As well as traditional male voice standards the choir will offer selections from popular musicals such as Les Miserables as well as newer pieces in the choir’s repertoire such as ‘The Fire Kindled’ a war poem of 1914 to 18, set to music and the ‘Song for the Unsung Hero’ another piece with reflections of the First World War.
With over 40 members, the choir accompanied by Mrs Irene Hill (keyboard) and Stephen Carey (keyboard and organ) will attract a large audience so you are advised to book your tickets early, as this concert is expected to sell out.
Interval light refreshments are included in the ticket price of £8.00. Tickets are available from Bookworm, Spa Lane, The Hub, Cannon Square, St Swithun’s Church or 01777 705899.
