Choral society's warm-up for concerts in Germany
Choral group MusicWork Vocal Ensemble is preparing to visit Chesterfield's twin town of Darmstadt as part of its 20th birthday celebrations.
They will travel to Germany for five days in April and perform concerts in churches.
During the visit, there will be a civic reception and a guided tour of Darmstadt.
Musical director Andrew Marples said “We are very excited about this tour and are looking forward to performing some English music in Darmstadt including items to celebrate Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary”.
They will perform a pre-tour evening concert on Saturday, March 12, in All Saints’ Church in Wingerworth, when they will try out their varied musical programme which features unaccompanied choral music from madrigals to the Kings Singers
This concert begins at 7.30pm and admission is £7 at the door, including German themed refreshments. For more information, call 01246 211655
