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 earlier this year; after an enforced break of almost 18 months due to restrictions imposed by the pandemic.
We will perform a concert of music as a ‘Right Royal Celebration’ of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on July 16th, 2022 at the Renew Church, at 67 High Street, Uttoxeter from 7:30pm. For more information, please click here or on the ‘Upcoming Events’ section at the bottom of this page.
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 in December, 2021. You can see and hear excerpts of the performance here; on YouTube.
We usually perform regularly; if it weren’t for the outbreak of Covid we would still have been! The Christmas concert in St Mary’s was very special for all concerned, audience, helpers and Singers alike. You can see images of the evening here.
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 twice-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 50 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!
