A male voice choir in Derbyshire have been out and about spreading lots of Christmas spirit this festive season.
It’s been a busy time for the Alfreton Male Voice Choir in the run up to the big day. Members have been singing festive tunes at a multitude of venues.
To name but a few, these have include at: Palmer Morewood Club, South Wingfield Club, and at Ripley Co-op.
Speaking of just two of those events, a spokesman for the choir said last week: “The guys of the choir plus accompanist Lisa have spent two evenings helping to bring a party atmosphere to Christmas parties at two local social clubs.
“On Tuesday it was Palmer Morewood and Wednesday South Wingfield. The choir along with their ‘Sagalouts’ and ‘Leonora the Lion’ raised laughter song and a fair bit of ‘joining in.’
“Performing songs including ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ (with wide eyed children holding Leonora), roasting chestnuts in The Christmas Song’ alongside ‘White Christmas’ and ‘Candlelight Carol.’
“The ‘Sagalouts’ brought much colour and laughter with a medley of Christmas songs even bringing ‘Elvis’ in for a spot.”
The spokesman continued: “The fantastic audiences took the roof off the club buildings as the choir led them singing ‘Sweet Caroline’ followed by Slade’s ‘Merry Christmas.”
