Summer 2016 update

This year has been one of our most successful years ever, with choir membership at an all time high, and we have taken part in some memorable events. The visit to Belgium was again a great success, the Selby Abbey Concert was memorable and this year’s Patrons’ concerts with our Opera North guest artistes were fantastic. You will, I am sure, be pleased to know that we have again been able to book Victoria Sharp and Ivan Sharpe for our 2017 Patrons’ concerts.

A new venture for us was singing on the field at Featherstone Rovers rugby ground in front of a record crowd of over six thousand people.

A long way ahead, but you might be interested to consider joining the choir in Ypres from 18 – 21 May 2018 for the Last Post ceremony and other performances. 2018 marks the end of the First World War and is bound to attract great numbrs of visitors from around the world.

As ever we are always pleased to welcome new members and please, if you know anyone who may be interested in joining us, do invite them to attend a rehearsal. They will be made very welcome.

Our Male Voice Choir meets twice weekly in the small town of Featherstone which lies on the A645 between Pontefract and Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England. The choir has singers from ages 40 something to 89 and has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The choir’s musical repertoire is very varied and includes all types of music including songs from the shows, songs made famous by Elvis Presley and Westlife, calypsos and spirituals as well as songs written by the great composers such as Handel, Puccini and Verdi. It also performs traditional choral and Christmas music. Concerts are performed in the local area and beyond, often supporting charities and good causes.

Shearings Holidays Male Voice Choir would like to thank Jack Tams for building and maintaining this Website, also Gillian and Baines LTD of Knottingley for funding it.
