The Marchington Singers

WELCOME!

The Marchington Singers is a friendly, mixed-age, mixed-ability, mixed-voice choir based in the beautiful village of Marchington in Staffordshire.

We are delighted to have been able to resume singing together once more; after an enforced break of almost 18 months due to restrictions imposed by the pandemic.

We  thoroughly enjoyed performing a concert of music as a ‘Right Royal Celebration’ of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on July 16th, 2022 at the Renew Church in Uttoxeter.

In December 2021, we performed ‘A Christmas Carol’; a cantata by Ashley Thompson & Debbie McAndrew; based upon Charles Dickens’s Christmas tale at St Mary’s church in Uttoxeter. You can see and hear excerpts of the performance here; on YouTube.

We now perform regularly again; if it weren’t for the outbreak of Covid we would always have been!

We have been singing together now since 1984, enjoying performances at a variety of local, national and international venues. We have delighted a wide range of audiences at concerts, weddings and festivals with a wide repertoire ranging from light favourites to four-part choral works to songs from the world of entertainment. We frequently support charities through our fundraising events and activities.

We take a keen interest in supporting and promoting the development of local talent, and our thrice-yearly concerts have featured many guest musicians, dancers and singers of all ages, some of whom have gone on to achieve international recognition. We have also recently introduced a £500 Bursary Scheme for Young Singers intended to support aspiring singers, up to the age of 25.

We currently have around 40 singers. If you would like to join us, our weekly rehearsals are on Wednesdays at 7.30pm in Marchington Village Hall, ST14 8LF.  We have  now recommenced our practices in as safe a manner as we can, after a pandemic-induced break. If you would like to become part of our community, please contact us – you will be made very welcome!
