The choir were invited to perform at this Carol Service in Sedgley on Wednesday 16th December at 7pm. We have a successful ongoing collaborative relationship with High Arcal School music department. We sang ‘Joy to the World’, ‘Let there be peace on Earth’ & then a medley of carols.
All Saints Church provided the venue for an evening of Christmas variety at High Arcal’s Carol Service. A packed congregation were treated to a carefully chosen programme of songs, carols, band numbers and drama sketches; which showcased the talent and versatility of over 40 performers. The Expressive Arts Faculty would like to thank everyone who supported this most pleasant of community events. – Quote from High Arcal School website

WOMVC were proud to lead Wolverhampton’s Civic Carol Service 2015. The service began with Once in Royal David’s City.
After the 1st lesson, the choir sang The Advent Hymn & Joy to the World followed by a congregational carol ‘See him lying on a bed of straw.’
After the 2nd lesson, everyone sang ‘O little town of Bethlehem’ & after the 3rd lesson we sang the Christmas version of Kwmbayah & O Holy Night.
After the 4th lesson everyone sang ‘Hark the herald angels sing’, then after the 5th lesson, the choir sang How great thou art & Let there be peace on Earth.
After the Prayers of Intercession, we all sang ‘O come all ye faithful’ to finish the service.
The Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir will be in fine voice at the city’s annual Civic Carol Service next month.
The traditional service, which is open to all, takes place at Darlington Street Methodist Church on Wednesday 9 December, 2015, from 3.30pm and will be led by the Reverend David Lavender. Mince pies and mulled wine will be served afterwards.
Wolverhampton Mayor Councillor Ian Brookfield said: “We’re looking forward to a fantastic afternoon of song in the company of the Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir. This fantastic annual event is sure to get everyone into the festive spirit.”

We were invited by the BBC to perform on Saturday 12th July at their World War 1 at Home live event, which coincided with The Wolverhampton & Black Country Show on the weekend of 12th & 13th July 2014. The venue was West Park in Wolverhampton. The newly renamed show supersedes the popular City Show. We were scheduled to perform at approx. 3.30pm for 20 mins, then at 5.30pm for 30 mins. The BBC WW1 at Home event will be broadcasting live on BBC Radio WM 95.6.
The choir feel very privileged to have been asked to take part in this very special event in Wolverhampton. Selected war time pieces from our concert the previous evening at The Goodyear Pavilion will be sung at West Park.
Just wanted to say a huge thank-you for making the WW1 at Home event such a success in Wolverhampton. Around 11,000 people turned up over the two days and the feedback was really positive. I hope you all enjoyed it.
Thanks again! – Louise Brierley, BBC
