Book Your Seat Early for Top Choir Event at Sutton-in-Ashfield
Each year the National Association of Choirs (East Midlands Region) stage a major concert and this year Mansfield and District Male Voice Choir are privileged to host this wonderful event.
Five excellent and contrasting choirs will be taking to the stage: ‘Erewash Phoenix Choir’, ‘Pye Hill and District Male Voice Choir’, ‘The Gentlemen’, ‘Sonara Singers’ and of course ‘Mansfield and District Male Voice Choir’. All of these choirs are highly regarded in their local communities and further afield!
The venue has been deliberately chosen for unrivalled acoustics, and the added bonus of beautiful and unique architecture, at the United Reformed Church, High Pavement, Sutton in Ashfield, NG17 1BT. The event will take place on Saturday 20 May 2017 at 7.00 p.m. Tickets are priced at the bargain price of £8.00 and can be purchased by calling 01623 455373. Don’t miss out on this great event and reserve your tickets to-day!
The range of songs performed during the evening will be wide and contrasting as you would expect from 130 choristers and five choir’s and the audience will be entertained from songs from the shows, traditional choir favourites and contemporary classics.
The evening will end with a “massed choir” of 130 voices performing the modern Spiritual ‘I’m Goin’ Up A Yonder’ and then, by way of a glorious finale, the choirs and audience will stir the patriotic fervour by ending the evening with ‘I Vow to Thee My Country’.

At the recent Annual General Meeting of the Pye Hill and District Male Voice Choir, Edward Holmes, Choir President, presented to Malcolm Hill, Concert Secretary, a substantial silver cup in recognition of his commitment, achievements, and hard work on behalf of the choir during the last year.
In his address, Edward said ‘that in choosing this year’s recipient of the President’s Cup, there had been three very worthy names put forward and each was seriously considered and had all made valuable contributions to the choir in various ways. However, it was felt that Malcolm had gone that extra mile on so many occasions and has made such a significant impact to the benefit of the choir this was the reason he had been selected to receive the award’
‘In his position as Concert Secretary, Malcolm constantly strives to arrange and promote concerts and the choir. This had brought about in 2016 another full concert programme, including new and exciting venues. He had also strived to build excellent relationships with other choirs which had brought a range of benefits’.
‘Malcolm excels out of his remit with his ideas for promoting the choir in the community and encouraging new members to join. When a new recruit joins the choir his natural friendly personality does so much to welcome and overcome initial nerves. He truly cares about every chorister, keeping absent members up to date with information and developments. A truly valuable member who has constantly gone beyond his remit. Edward said it was a real pleasure to hand Malcolm this cup’.
