A Choral Evening - with the Denbigh & District Male Voice Choir

Saturday 4th September 2010

 

On Saturday 4th September, Holy Trinity Church on Hoghton Street in Southport echoed to the inimitable sound of more than thirty of the best male voices raised in song. The Denbigh and District Male Voice Choir most kindly volunteered to give a charity concert in aid of Southport Lions Club’s Christmas Parcel distribution 2010.

More than two hundred people took the opportunity to hear this great choir in full flight!

The programme was a mix of Welsh and English, a selection of Welsh hymns, spirituals, traditional choral music, folk songs and songs from the shows, and at the Intermission, mid way through the concert, complimentary tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits were served in the Holy Trinity Parish Centre, next door to the Church.

 

Thanks to the generosity of the Choir, the support of the Vicar and Parishioners of Holy Trinity Church, the ladies of the Parish Centre, and the Southport Champion Newspaper, about £1,200 was raised by the concert, sufficient to provide more than a hundred parcels this Christmas.

The Denbigh and District Male Voice Choir is well-known in choral circles, and they have a website which gives much more information about the Choir.

Every year, Southport Lions Club distributes Christmas Parcels and Gifts to local people who might otherwise feel that Christmas has passed them by. Those who attended the concert helped to bring a little of the joy of Christmas to some of our less fortunate neighbours.
