Three Alfreton choirs came together to raise more than £1,000 for the RNLI in October.
At the concert, Alfreton Male Voice Choir performed a number of songs, including Bohemian Rhapsody and What a Wonderful World, to an audience of more than 200 people.
They were joined at the concert by members of Alfreton Treble Clef Choir, whose conductor Charlotte Pell – now Harrison – was to be married five days later.
The choir’s performances included songs that they were going to sing at the wedding, including Never Enough from The Greatest Showman.
Students from the David Nieper Academy choir also took to the stage and sang a variety of songs, including Hakuna Matata from the Lion King
After the interval, the choirs were joined by the Alfreton Male Voice Sagalouts, who were dressed as sailors and performed two sea shanties.
The sea shanties were fine introduction to Will Stanier, chairman of the Derbyshire RNLI Fundraising Group, who was present for the concert and spoke to the audience, thanking all the choirs and audience for their generosity, noting the majority of lives saved by the RNLI are inlanders including residents of Amber Valley.
The three Alfreton choirs came together to sing You Raise Me Up and final number You’ll Never Walk Alone.
Mick Mullarkey, chairman of Alfreton Male Voice Choir, said: “It was a very special and wonderful evening as three Alfreton choirs entertained and made music to raise money for an important charity, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.”
