The Valentines held their annual concert at Kidderminster Town Hall on April 28th, celebrating their 30th anniversary. Their guests were the Kidderminster Male Choir who were responsible for bringing the first group of ladies together to form the choir, being originally made up of wives and girlfriends of the male choir.
A varied programme of music was enjoyed by the capacity audience, culminating in a piece of music especially written for the event by Valentines Principle Accompanist Morfudd Sinclair called Just Keep Believing.
The Valentines are celebrating their 30th anniversary with a concert at Kidderminster Town Hall at 7.30 on Saturday 28th April where they will be joined by their male counterparts The Kidderminster Male Choir.
A mixed repertoire is guaranteed from both choirs, culminating in a piece written by the Valentines principle accompanist Morfudd Sinclair especially for the concert called Just Keep Believing which will be sung by both choirs.
Tickets are still available from the Town Hall, choir members and the usual outlets.
We are celebrating our thirtieth birthday this February and we are excited to be celebrating with a variety of concerts with friends old and new. Take a look at our Events page for more information.

The Valentines are heading over the border to Wales to join forces once again with the Phoenix Choir of Wales for a special joint concert on Saturday night.
The two choirs have sung together twice before, on our summer tour to Swansea two summers ago and then the guys visited us for a concert out at Alverley.
Both Choirs are introducing new pieces into the concert repertoire, and we are sure the concert will be well supported on Saturday night.
