Many of you will know that the Valentines have been holding online rehearsals via Zoom during the last year due to the pandemic.

We are pleased to announce that after having our hopes dashed in May, physical rehearsals will resume on July 22nd with small groups socially distanced, supported for a while by a continuation of our online practice.

 

We are looking forward to getting back to regular singing together without the need for a ‘mute’ button, and preparing for our next concert.

We already have some provisional concert dates pencilled in so please pop them into your diary. More information about how to obtain tickets will be shared via our website and social media pages nearer the time.

Provisional dates so far:

Saturday 13th November 2021 Kidderminster Town Hall

Saturday 4th December 2021 At Anne’s church Bewdley

Saturday 9th April 2022 Kidderminster Town Hall

We are also opening the choir to new members. If you would like to join us, whether you are new to singing or would like to start singing again, then please get in touch. All our details can be found on our website.

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.

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.

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!

30th Anniversary Concert

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.

 

Off to the land of Song

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.

Tis the season to be jolly….

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!

Merry Christmas!
