The Musicality Singers are at The Crossing in Worksop this month for their Christmas Concert.

Formed a year ago, the choir is made up of members of Worksop and District U3A, people from Worksop and the surrounding villages.

To help them develop as a choir, they have secured the services of professional musician and musical director, local man, Greg Watson,.

Under the musical direction of Greg and accompanist, Peter Colby, the choir has been developing its repertoire and its reputation in the local community.

“The choir has developed a sound all of its own and their dedication, enthusiasm, and sense of fun make it a pleasure both to listen to and to be part of,” commented Greg.

The choir gave its first performance before a paying audience at a Christmas concert at Worksop’s Acorn Theatre in December last year.

The concert was a sell out success, with the choir being called on for an encore. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with people asking when they could hear the choir again.

Since last year, the choir have broadened their repertoire and developed their skills still further.

The choir’s last performance was at the Memorial Service at the Priory Church at the end of November.

They sang four pieces during the service.

And as an accompaniment to the lighting of the candles at the end of the service, they sang a moving arrangement of The Circle of Life from The Lion King.

As well as arrangements of well known Christmas songs and carols, their Crossing concert will feature some of the choir’s main repertoire, which includes among other things, an extended and improved medley of favourite Beatles numbers, Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, ELO’s Mr Blue Sky and Always Look on the Bright Side of Life from Monty Python’s Life of Brian.

The concert takes place on Wednesday, 17th December, at 7.30pm.

Tickets priced £6 are available from the desk at The Crossing on Newcastle Street in Worksop.
