About Us

Our first concert of 2016 and our first to be led by our new musical director was a performance of DVORAK’s MASS IN D MAJOR, together with a set of European sacred melodies, on 19th March 2016  at  St John's Church, Hugglescote. There were some wonderful organ pieces played by Leicester cathedral organist, Simon Headley and superb solos from acclaimed soprano, Caroline Essex.

This concert of beautiful music was very well received by an appreciative audience.

This was followed by our Summer Concert - ‘JULY JAZZ’ a “café-style” evening at Ibstock Community College where were joined by the Brian Humpherson Jazz Quntet. This concert was a huge success!

The society is now having a summer break, and rehearsals will start again on Tuesday 6th September for our next concert Handel's MESSIAH at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Ashby-de-la-Zouch.

See the News/Concerts page for more details.
