Singers on Tour

December 19, 2014 | Filed under: 2015, Jan 2015

Tideswell Singers have enjoyed singing carols throughout the festive season and are now looking forward to a change of repertoire in the New Year.

Recognising their roots lie in the local community, the choir enjoys performing short concerts in neighbouring villages, so watch the calendar for events in our on-going ‘Derbyshire tour’.

Plans are underway for our annual Come & Sing. Now an established event, eagerly anticipated by keen singers in the region, Tideswell Singers’ invitation this year is to ‘Come and Sing Mozart’s Requiem’ on 18 April 2015. This work was left incomplete when Mozart died at the young age of 35 and is surrounded by myths and intrigues. We are very fortunate that Mozart expert and Head of Music at the University of Sheffield, Prof Simon Keefe will give a short, illuminating talk entitled ‘Mozart’s Requiem and its Legends’ before the performance. We will be joined by the University of Sheffield Chamber Orchestra, so this promises to be a really stimulating day.

There is always invitation to come along and find out if you would like to join us as a regular singer. There are no auditions and rehearsals are directed in a way that encourages everyone to sing to the best of their ability. Singers need no previous experience and although we generally sing from music scores, it is not necessary to be able to read music as you will be able to learn as you go along.
