Spring into Singing

Tideswell Singers announce forthcoming appearances Tideswell Singers are pleased to sing at Tideswell Food Festival on Saturday 5th May, an event they have been proud to support since it started in 2010. Included in the repertoire for this event are appropriate food and drink related songs – to whet your appetites! Later in the month, Wednesday 23rd May, The Singers will provide a selection of music to suit a spring evening in the idyllic surroundings of the Orangery at Cressbrook Hall. Spring Serenade promises to be a delightful occasion with chance to relax and enjoy a concert of music, inspired by night and nature, followed by wine and cheeses as you admire the stunning scenery over Cressbrook Dale. As Mrs Hull-Bailey has offered Tideswell Singers the opportunity to sing at Cressbrook Hall, they are proud support a charity close to her heart, ‘Save the Children’, to which proceeds from the event will be donated. The programme demonstrates how Tideswell Singers relish the challenge to sing music in a variety of styles and genre; you will be able to hear the atmospheric ‘Sure on the shining night’ by American composer Morten Lauridson along with majesty of Rachmaninov’s setting of ‘Ave Maria’ in Church Slavonic. ‘Night and Day’ and ‘Fields of Gold’ will be more familiar, as is Howard Goodall’s setting of Psalm 23, which we all know as the theme to ‘The vicar of Dibley’. Hopefully there will be something to appeal to all musical tastes and maybe bring a pleasant surprise. Why not give yourself a midweek treat as the evenings grow longer and warmer! Tickets (£15) include wine and cheese are available from Tideswell Stores, Litton Shop and from members of the choir. The choir rehearses on Wednesdays at 7:30pm in Litton Village Hall (Litton Church on the second Wednesday of the month). New members are always welcome.
