A long-serving baritone singer has retired from a Derbyshire based community choir.
Alfreton Male Voice Choir, which draws members from the town and wider areas, has recently said farewell to one of their long-serving members Ken Aspinall.
A spokesman for the choir said: “Ken Aspinall recently gave up his Alfreton Male Voice Choir music repertoire to retire at home.
“Ken, a long serving member of the baritone section, committee member, originated and ran the choir lottery and loved playing the tea chest base in the Choirs’ Sagalouts skiffle group when his black wig and top hat always caused a ripple of laughter.”
The spokesman continued: “The choir couldn’t let long serving-member Ken go without a momento; so a picture of the choir was arranged, framed with an appropriate caption, and presented to Ken by Choir Chairman Tom Walden and Music Director Terry Clay.”
