This is just a reminder that on this coming Friday evening at 7:30pm, 7th November 2014 there will be a wonderful First World War concert at St. Johns Church, Walsall Wood, performed by a 40 man male voice choir and the Staffordshire Band.
The choir have a remarkable pedigree, and this is a great chance to catch them in action for the small sum of a fiver.
Deryk Langford sent me the following:
We now have the Brownhills Wednesday Singers, a 40 strong mixed voice choir, who are presenting a World War 1 concert along with the ever popular Staffordshire Band on 7th November at Walsall Wood Parish Church at 7:30pm.
Tickets are limited and cost £5 obtainable from Deryck Langford 01543 821999.
Come along and join in a singalong of old songs from the Trenches.
David Evans has charted the Choral Society from its very beginning, and also through the years of George Fullelove. Along the way, railway expert and chorister Ian Pell also turned up some great material. This is all part of a complex and surprising musical culture in Brownhills, both in the classical tradition and the more modern sense – it’s very satisfying to see that tradition continue with the Wednesday Singers.
