How the Vale Harmony have hit all the right notes ahead of Spring Sing

Evesham Editorial 15th Apr, 2022   0

MALE singers in a Pershore-based chorus who are about to hold their big concert in Pershore Abbey have an extra spring in their step this week after winning two trophies for their singing.

Vale Harmony The A Cappella Fellas performed at the Dudley Festival of Arts and came away with the award for the Best Barbershop Chorus and first prize in the ‘Singing for Pleasure’ category.

The A Cappella Fellas are staging their Spring Sing at Pershore Abbey on May 7 in support of Prostate Cancer UK after a delay of two years because of the pandemic.

Chris Franey, Vale Harmony’s chairman, said: “Winning these trophies at Dudley has confirmed that after two years absence we are back in full voice and are well on song.

“Our Spring SIng concert at Pershore Abbey was originally due to be held in April 2020 but Covid 19 intervened. We were determined to keep the chorus together during the lockdowns. We met weekly by Zoom and even invested in new uniforms, a new name and new logo.

“Now it’s fantastic that, at last, we can put on this fabulous evening of entertainment at the Abbey.

“It will be the third time we’ve been joined by the award-winning Great Western Chorus of Bristol and we hope to sing to a full house now the Abbey has relaxed its Covid distancing restrictions. “

The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £13 for adults and £10 for children 12 years and under from BLUE in Broad Street.
