Eskdale Festival

We’ve just had the most fabulous day in Whitby – we sang our hearts out, in both the Male Voice and the Sacred categories. Super comments from the adjudicator (Marilynne Davies – thank you!) who loved our balance, our tone, our energy and presentation. And we were congratulated for being the most attentive choir there (absolutely important!) . Special mentions went to our soloists in ‘Do You Hear The People Sing’ – Dave Marsh (bass), Will Bisby (top tenor) and Chris Marsh (baritone). Our tenors were given credit for a wonderful solo section in Morte Christe, and she loved our well controlled endings to our pieces across the board. We couldn’t be more proud of every single choir member this weekend. We’ve had members singing this weekend who are super new to singing, let alone competitions. It’s the first time many of our gents have ever sung in anything as prestigious as today. What teamwork and camaraderie we’ve been a privilege to be a part of. Congratulations to the winners of all our sections – we were especially inspired by Colne Valley MVC and York Philharmonic MVC, and really loved sharing the stage with our other local choirs in Penistone ladies and Skelmanthorpe MVC. There’s something so special about being in the company of friends. Stunning performances all round ♥️🎶🎶
