Local choirs join forces for spring concert on March 23rd

Chapel-en-le-frith Ladies Choir & High Peak Singers join forces for a spring concert on March 23rd at Whaley Bridge Whaley Bridge Uniting Church, Buxton Road.
The concert, ‘A Golden Spring’, is the first event marking a special year for Chapel Ladies Choir: their 50th anniversary. It features a range of music – from Spanish folk songs to pop, gospel, the stirring ‘Sure on This Shining Night’ by US composer Morten Lauridston, and the shimmering harmonies of Eric Whitacre’s ‘Sing Gently’.
High Peak Singers are conducted by Hannah Brine, and Chapel Ladies by Sam Gilliatt.
Hannah said: ‘Singing together is such a joyful experience, and combining the two choirs will be a lovely opportunity to share our passion and hard work over this term. For our grand finale we’ll have a choir of over 100 singers to raise the roof in Whaley!’
Chapel Ladies added: ‘We’re starting our golden anniversary year on a sparkling note in great company, and look forward to welcoming everyone to the concert.’
