Choir’s diamond year

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Shifnal and District Male Voice Choir, and a celebratory charity concert will take place in the Village Hall on Saturday 9 December. Back in the 1950s a small group of enthusiastic singers provided entertainment for the customers in the White Hart and around the local community. Little did anyone realise at the time what a mighty oak would grow from this small acorn – the choir has gone on to compete at both national and international level, competing with some of the finest male voice choirs in the country.

“Today the choir consists of over 30 men with musical director Anne Clark and accompanist Jade Harris and we have a varied and modern repertoire. We’re always ready to recruit more, in particular bass singers,” said chair Steven Taylor. “Bill Jeffs, one of the founding members of the choir, still lives in Shifnal and attends concerts whenever he can. We’re delighted to celebrate 60 years of the challenges and joys of making music together.” The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £5 – visit shifnalmvc.org.uk.
