Celtic connections in a new concert for choral society

24 June 2017

A summer concert of folk and traditional songs from the British Isles is being presented in Market Harborough.

The show by Market Harborough Choral Society takes place on Saturday, 24 June, at the town's Methodist church in Northampton Road.

The concert is entitled Celtic Connections and features a host of well known songs from the Celtic corners of the British Isles - Scotlnd, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall and the Isle of Man.

Items to be sung include such standards as All through the Night from Wales, Skye Boat Song from Scotland and Molly Malone from Ireland.

The concert will feature items from a brand new collection of British folks songs which the choir will be presenting for the first time.

The audience will be invited to join in the choruses of several numbers led by a smaller group from the choir, who have led rousing songs in past concerts.

Neil Ryrie, the chair of the society, who hales from Scotland, said: "We have really enjoyed rehearsing these songs which connect the culture and tradition of the Celtic regions of the British Isles.

"It will make a great end to our season and we are looking forward to sharing and singing them with our audience."

The concert will be conducted by the choral society's musical director, Anselm Kersten, and accompanied by Oksana King.

Market Harborough Choral Society meets weekly each Tuesday evening for rehearsals in Market Harborough (mainly during school term time) and performs a very wide repertoire of traditional and modern choral music.

The society prides itself on being inclusive and welcoming.

There are more than 70 singers of all ages and anyone is welcome, young voices included.

Tickets are £12, £10 for concessions, and are on sale from Spencer's Estate Agents on the High Street or online via Ticketsource.

The group have said that while it is likely there will be tickets remaining on the door, anybody looking to avoid disappointment should book in advance.
