Choir entertains with series of Christmas concerts & seeks new recruits

The City of Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir are to hold a total of four concerts in December, one on December 3rd, then another on December 8th, one on December 14th and a final one on December 15th.

The first concert will take place on December 3rd at Highcroft Hall Care Home, based on Old Fallings Lane, Bushbury, from 7.30pm where the choir will entertain residents ahead of the festive season. The concerts on December 8th and 15th will take place at Sainsbury’s (Wednesfield) based on Rookery Street, close to Bentley Bridge from 3pm. A further concert will take place (with) High Arcal School (at) All Saints’ CofE Church, Vicar Street, Sedgley on December 14.

It is hoped that the concerts will encourage new members to join the choir, which was founded in 1943 and in 2013 celebrated its 70th anniversary.

High Arcal School Christmas Carol Service

The choir were invited to perform at this Carol Service in Sedgley on WednHigh Arcal School logoesday 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

Lest We Forget: Concert at St. Mary’s Church, Bushbury, Wolverhampton

On Saturday 20th September we performed at St. Mary’s Parish Church in Bushbury, Wolverhampton. The concert commemorated the ‘brave boys’ of the Old Bushbury Parish who served in World Wars 1 & 2. We were ably supported by five instrumentalists from High Arcal School in Sedgley.
