The Marchington Singers are delighted to bring you this            The Marchington Singers
Concert tonight: a miscellany of favourite songs, with a
few readings, for your entertainment, to join with other
Marchington events celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee.

We’re presenting something of a ‘Royal Tour’ as we have              Celebration!
included songs from around the world, as well as some
which very clearly bring us back home to England.

We had a most successful tour of the Mosel region of        A concert to mark the Golden Jubilee of
Germany just after Easter, the highlight of which was          Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
singing in Cologne Cathedral. It was an experience we
shall never forget. Then in May we were fortunate to gain
two silver trophies at the Derby Arts Festival.


The singers are available for your event, whether it be a
church festival, celebration dinner, wedding or charity
concert. Please contact our Chairman, Tim Scott, on
01889 563570 for details and to discuss a date and fee to
suit you.

If you would care to come along to one of our rehearsals
you will be more than welcome; we are always looking for
new voices in all parts. We meet at St Peter’s School,
Marchington, every Wednesday in term-time at 8.00 p.m.,
and practice for about two hours, with a short break.
