Exciting News!

We are proud to be working on an exciting new joint venture with Barnburgh Village Singers, a four-part ladies choir.

Rehearsals are currently well under way for the performance, as a mixed voice choir. Joined by other individuals from local music groups, all will combine as the Dearne Valley Festival Chorus to perform “Feel The Spirit”. This is a cycle of seven spirituals expertly arranged by John Rutter, comprising:- Joshua fit the battle of Jericho, Steal away, I got a robe, Sometimes I feel like a motherless child, Ev’ry time I feel the spirit, Deep river and When the saints go marching in.

The first half will include a range of songs to suit all tastes performed by both choirs individually. The finale will be in the style of ‘Last night of the Proms ‘ with an opportunity for audience participation!

This not-to-be-missed concert will take place at the Holy Trinity Church, Church Drive, Wentworth, Rotherham, South Yorkshire on Saturday 29th July 2017 at 7.30pm.

This church lends a special atmosphere to music performed in it, and there is no doubt that this will be a special concert. Come and enjoy a July evening in the company of the Dearne Valley Festival Chorus!

Tickets are available now, priced at £10 for adults with under 16s at £5.
