The Marchington Singers is a friendly, mixed-age, mixed-ability, mixed-voice choir based in the beautiful village of Marchington in Staffordshire.
This year we celebrate our 40th anniversary! We will perform our celebratory concert “Still singing along, 40 years on” on May11th, 2024 at 7.30pm at Sudbury Gasworks. Tickets are available from Eventbrite here.
We performed a programme of Christmastide music at our last concert on Saturday, 2nd December, 2023 at the church of St Mary the Virgin, Bridge Street, Uttoxeter, Staffordshire ST14 8AW.
We were delighted to perform our Summer concert, King and Country, on 15th July last year for an appreciative audience at the Renew church.
You can see and hear excerpts of our Christmas performance in 2022 of ‘A Christmas Carol’; a cantata by Ashley Thompson & Debbie McAndrew; based upon Charles Dickens’s Christmas tale here; on YouTube.
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 30 singers. If you would like to join us, our weekly rehearsals are on Wednesdays at 7.30pm in Marchington Village Hall, ST14 8LF. If you would like to become part of our community, please contact us – you will be made very welcome!
