The Dronfield Parish

Ladies Voices

 

LATEST NEWS: Since March the Ladies Voices have not bee able to meet. The members have, however, stayed in touch and a number of the ladies have recorded a video to make a recording of The Music of The Night.

 

The Dronfield Parish Ladies Voices is a relatively new choir for ladies that was formed in September 2019. The group is led by Rob Aldread and meets on Monday evenings at 7:30pm in Dronfield Parish Church. The group sings in three-part harmony: Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano and Alto.

 

If you think you might be interested in joining,

please get in touch with Rob in the first instance to

explore if this might be possible. 

In January 2020 the group grew to 32 members and on 15th March the ladies had an AMAZING day singing with the Young Voices and Jenn Bostic at the afternoon Lift Your Voices community event and then in the evening they had the absolute privilege to be special guests of Jenn for what turned out to be the final show of her Spring 2020 "Take My Hand" UK Tour.

Below are some viedeos and pictures. Thanks to Chris Parker Photography for the pictures in this gallery:

Here is a video of the ladies singing with Jenn Bostic at the evening concert in Dronfield Civic Hall. We are VERY grateful to John Pashley for the great filming and editing:

On Saturday 14th December the original 24 x ladies from across the community performed their first ever concert. It was a GREAT SUCCESS with 150+ people attending and £926 raised which was split equally between Cardiac Risk in The Young and The Dronfield Parish Young Voices.

Below are some videos, pictures and recordings from the Christmas concert. And here is a link to the programme.
