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 very recently after an enforced break of almost 18 months. We performed our first concert for almost two years at St Mary’s church in Uttoxeter at Christmas. We sang ‘A Christmas Carol’; a cantata by Ashley Thompson & Debbie McAndrew; based on Charles Dickens’ Christmas tale. 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 for 37 years, 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 bursary scheme for young singers for 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!

Unfortunately, in accordance with government guidelines and in the best interest of all concerned, all events for the last couple of years were cancelled.
