Some of our ladies joined the massed choir and brass bands at the Royal Albert Hall earlier this month for the final Cancer Research UK Festival of Brass and Voices. Over 1500 voices raised the roof of the RAH for this spectacular event.
As we head into the Autumn season and with Christmas fast approaching the Valentines are working away on some new items to add to the repertoire for the upcoming concerts.
We are excited to be planning our concert with Alcester Silver Band on November 17th with a theme of music from films including some joint items from the band and choir. The concert will be at Kidderminster Town Hall and we are expecting a capacity audience so get your tickets now or be disappointed!
As usual we are out and about over the Christmas season and this year we will be starting the festive season at Wolverley Memorial Hall on December 1st. Keep an eye on our events page for more details.
Our latest Friends of the Kidderminster Valentines Newsletter is available here so take a look and feel free to share with your friends.
We hope to see you at a concert soon!
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Kidderminster Male Choir who were responsible for bringing the first group of ladies together to form the choir, being originally made up of wives and girlfriends of the male choir.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.
To start the celebrations we had a post rehearsal get together with cake drink and nibbles, here are a few of our celebratory photos.
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.
It’s that time of year when the choir get out their tinsel and sleigh bells out as we start our Christmas concerts.
First up is next Saturday when we visit Pound Green, followed by a trip to Malvern three counties on Sunday for the Christmas show. Next weekend we join our good friends Kidderminster Male Choir for their Christmas Concert on Saturday 10th at Kidderminster Town Hall before taking a trip down the road to Bewdley to join Bewdley Concert Band on Sunday 18th at St Anne’s Church. So grab your tinsel and Santa hats and join us if you can!
