Mansfield and District Male Voice Choir are set to perform with two others in an inspiring concert at Southwell Minster.

Songs will be performed with help from The Dalesmen, of Belper and St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir, of Bury St Edmunds at the 8th Match gig.

They will include popular classics such as An American Trilogy, Bring Him Home and You Raise Me Up.

Geoff Mansfield, MDMVC chairman, said the atmosphere on the night promised to be electric.

He added: “We are very much looking forward to it. There will be a lot of anticipation - particularly on the part of St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir.

“There will be 160 singers on stage - I think this will be one of the biggest events at Southwell Minster this year.”

MDMVC will be hosted by St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir for a repeat performance of Inspire – A Celebration of Male Voice Choirs in Suffolk on 10th May.

Said Geoff: “I think that will be a lot different because male voice choirs here have roots on mining, but they are more agricultural and rural down in Suffolk.

“I would expect people from all over East Anglia to be at that event.” Tickets are £15 and available by phoning 01623 405296. Proceeds go to John Eastwood Hospice.
