Autumn Concert on Saturday 21st October 2017 in St.Mary's Church, Albrighton

Shifnal Chorale presented their autumn concert in the beautiful church of St. Mary's, Albrighton. The concert started at 7:30 pm and included a variety of music including the lively "Sourwood Mountain", "Ubi Caritas" by the young Norwegian composer Ola Gjeila, the beautiful "Seal Lullaby" and two Gilbert and Sullivan pieces: we also heard our Bass Baritone Neil Robinson sing two solos, the Geordie songs, "The Happenny Wood at Bedlington" and "The Cheviot Hills". Finally the choir sang a Cole Porter Medley before everyone took a break and enjoyed wine and cheese in the interval. 

After returning from our break the Chorale sang an arrangement for a mixed voice choir of 'Wonderful World', with a trumpet accompaniment provided by the Music Director, Paul Kelly. This was followed by Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah', then another favourite "You Raise me Up", two more Gilbert and Sullivan songs, the wistful "Autumn Leaves", and finally a more challenging song for the choir, "The Continental"! All in all, it was a successful evening.

Come and Sing with Shifnal Chorale on Saturday 4th Feb 2017

Shifnal Chorale held it's annual Choral Workshop on Saturday 4th February singing Mozart’s ‘Requiem’, under the musical direction of Paul Kelly. The venue, as last year, was the Trinity Methodist Church in Shifnal (Victoria Road, Shifnal TF11 8AE)

The workshop ran from 2.00 till 4.00 pm, followed by a break for tea and cakes.

We then held a sing through at 5 pm, which went very well: it was helped by the fact that we had 133 singers!
