Somercotes Choral Society after years of absence is to perform in Somercotes in April 2019.

Their next concert will be at Somercotes Village Hall on Saturday 27th April.

Jen Adams, the Choral Society’s Chairwoman, says that the choir was formed in 1953 by the late Wilfred Clarke.

“In later years we have toured around the area for our two concerts each year, so it is pleasing to return to the village which gives us our name.”

Jen says details of the concert will be announced later, but it will be a very varied programme.

Wilfred Clarke’s son Jeff is still a member of the society. He joined in the early 1960’s and recalls that there were 60 members including 20 men .Today there are only six men and more are needed!

The Choral Society’s Musical Director is Neil Farley of Belper and the accompanist is John Hobbs of Risley.

The choir practises at Swanwick School and Sports College, Hayes Lane, Swanwick every Tuesday evening. They welcome new members, particularly men.
