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

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.
