The ‘Voices For Esme’ Concert

 

Weybridge Male Voice Choir in St. Mary’s Church, Wendover – starting at 7.45pm on Saturday, 7th November.

 

We hope that as many people as possible can attend what will be a spectacular evening as the choir, one of the very best in the South East, come to Wendover for one night only to raise the roof of St. Mary's.  The choir will give all they can of their 'Voices For Esme' on that night - so that Esme herself can get a voice as well.

The members of the choir are travelling and giving their time without any charge.  Every penny raised goes to the fund.  

Nearly everyone loves the variety of Male Voice choir singing, with its spine-tingling four part harmonies and great contrasts from quietly reflective to full-throated choruses. And you can look forward to the choir’s dynamic young Musical Director Jonathan Kilhams coaxing the very best out of this popular and entertaining choir for this very special cause. 

As Johnny says ‘What makes a good choir isn’t just down to the choice of repertoire and perfection of musical notes. It is also down to the atmosphere created by its members and their shared love of singing. You can tell whether a choir is happy before they have even started to sing.’

Our programme of 16 songs is very varied and designed to be above all entertaining and uplifting, but reflective and moving also. We include several from musical shows, a couple of dynamic spirituals, a rousing Welsh hymn, old favourites like Let me Call You Sweetheart, and popular songs from the 60’s and later. And we will reflect the fact that this concert coincides with Remembrance Day commemorations by including two or three especially appropriate pieces including Johnny Kilhams’  own arrangement of ‘Only Remembered’ from War Horse.

When the men of Weybridge Male Voice Choir take to the concert stage, they never fail to entertain. To be one of them looks fun and is fun.

Add to that a couple of solo spots by members of the choir and perhaps a guest group; it will all add up to an evening to thoroughly enjoy and remember.
