May 9 @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm
We welcome the Dronfield Singers for the second year running! Catch their performance on Saturday 9th May in the Manor Gardens.
A little info about the Dronfield Singers by Karen Cook…
Dronfield Singers was formed in March 2012. At our first meeting we had about 40 people, we now have about 80 people on the mailing list! Although not everyone can make it every week we regularly have about 60 people at rehearsals.
We meet on Monday afternoons for a good sing and to have lots of fun. Everyone says they feel uplifted after singing, (myself included!) and we have become a bit like a large, friendly club.
We have sung for various local groups such as the Cardio club, the Welcome club, the Towns Women’s Guild and the WI. For the past three years we have done a concert in March, raising money for charity. This year we are splitting the proceeds from our charity concert between CRY and the Mayor’s charity.
We have sung at various local venues: The Civic Hall, the Peel Centre, Holmesfield church, Gosforth Lodge, Coal Aston Village Hall, The Barn at Christmas for the Christmas lights being switched on and outside Sainsburys! We have even been to Sindelfingen, Dronfield’s German twin town twice, and we are planning to visit again this year to sing at the festival.
I am very proud of the Singers and all that they have achieved over the last six years. We are very pleased to be taking part in the Dronfield Arts Festival again.
