Bakewell concert - all saints church - may
We were thrilled to join the Nationally renowned Rhos Orpheus Welsh Male Voice Choir for a concert in the beautiful All Saints Church in Bakewell in May. The Rhos Orpheus have held a biennial concert there over the past 10 years to raise funds for the Church and we were delighted that they invited us to join them. The Church was full and the audience enjoyed the variety of repertoire provided by, and the contrast berween, the male choir and the female chorus. After the concert many of both groups retired to the nearby Red Lion Pub and carried on singing!
Wirksworth cricket club
Fantastic evening at Wirksworth Cricket Club in June, where we shared the stage with the gold medal winning Nightfall Quartet at a fundraising evening for Martin.
The money raised will enable Martin to purchase a sports wheelchair and so continue coaching the juniors at the cricket club.
Thanks to Cricket Club for all their support & to the amazingly enthusiastic audience.
Spring concert for gell friends
On a Thursday evening in March we swapped our usual rehearsal slot and had the absolute pleasure of joining forces with Anthony Gell School 'Urban Choir' to raise funds for Gell Friends so that they can continue to provide much needed financial support for the many fantastic opportunities that the school provides for it's pupils.
The Urban Choir themselves were amazing and certainly made us up our game when we took to the stage to perform a repertoire spanning songs from the 1930s to contemporary hits by Adele and Jess Glynne, with classics from the 60s and 70s in between.
A fantastic £650 was raised on the evening and everyone from Ignite, the Urban Choir and the audience enjoyed an evening filled with song, friends and laughter.
At the end of January we celebrated our third anniversary by singing and dancing the night away in Matlock at the New Bath Hotel and Spa. Our social team really pulled out all the stops so that we could recognise our achievements over the past year and really let our hair down. It was also a chance to thank our brilliant directors, recognise those that go the extra mile for the chorus and just have fun together. We can't wait to see what the next 12 months has in store!
