The Major Oak Pop Choir is a ladies choir. Based in Edwinstowe, choir members come from all walks of life to share friendship, fun and a love of singing. They are proud to have raised many thousands of pounds for good causes, many of them local to Nottinghamshire.
Like everything else, Covid put a stop to rehearsals for two years – but the choir is now happy to be practising again every Monday night in the beautiful St Mary’s Church, Edwinstowe. With some exciting performances on the horizon, the group cannot wait to be back in the community doing what they love best: singing and raising funds for charity.
Their first performance will be in the magnificent setting of Sherwood Forest on Sunday 8th May, where they will be joining a host of other performers, including the Nottinghamshire Band of the Royal Engineers, for a fabulous free day of entertainment. The theme is ‘music through the decades’ so there will be something for everyone. The choir will be performing at 1.00pm to 2.00pm. For more information visit www.visitsherwood.co.uk/event/ve-day.
On Saturday 14th May the choir has been invited to sing at The Crossing, Newcastle Street, Worksop, S80 2AT. This will be their first formal concert for over two and a half years, so it will indeed be a special occasion. The ladies have been working extremely hard to put together a programme of popular chart hits to appeal to a wide range of tastes. Tickets for this concert can be purchased from The Crossing at a cost of £8.00 for adults and £4.00 for under-16s; to purchase, phone 01909 475421 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Saturday 23rd July, the choir will be performing another concert, this time in St Mary’s Church, Edwinstowe.
