Christmas is coming…..

After a busy autumn singing for the WI at The Three counties Showground, and at Pershore Abbey with the Alcester Victoria Silver Band we are now on the countdown to the Christmas season.

On Saturday 7th December we will be joining the annual Kemp Hospice Carol Service at Kidderminster Town Hall which starts at 11am, and then we are honoured to once again join our fellow choristers of Kidderminster Male Choir at their annual concert on Saturday 14th December, again at the Town Hall.

We already have concerts planned for 2020 including next Christmas, so pop over to our events page and get the dates in your diary.

Valentines Summer Concert

Back by popular demand on Saturday 20th July, Kidderminster Town Hall and the Valentines will again host the Alcester  Victoria Silver Band in a “Summer Spectacular” featuring music from stage and screen.

The audience who enjoyed the Autumn  joint concert last year will certainly not be disappointed with this year’s very varied and exciting new programme, whilst new audience members will undoubtedly enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and songs from shows spanning many eras.

The concert is in support of Kemp Hospice and Pancreatic Cancer UK. Tickets are priced £10 and £12 and are available from Kidderminster Town Hall, Beards Ironmongers in Bridge Street and Judy Morris on 01562 751753. The concert starts at 7:30pm and doors open at 7pm.

Autumn Season

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.

We hope to see you at a concert soon!

Fabulous 30th anniversary concert

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Kidderminster Male Choir who were responsible for bringing the first group of ladies together to form the choir, being originally made up of wives and girlfriends of the male choir.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.
