Carol Singers

Christmas Carol Concert at Walsall Arboretum this Saturday

Carol Singers

The Bath Street Band and 100 Voices Choir along with Walsall Council are delighted to invite everyone to come along and take part in what promises to be the biggest sing-song of the year – this Saturday 15 December at the lakeside Bandstand in Walsall Arboretum!

Choirmaster Darryll Prew of the 100 Voices Choir said:

“We will be signing all the traditional favoutrites, Oh Come All Ye Faithful, Good KIng Wenceslas, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and many more.

“There will be a glass of mulled wine or soft drink and a mince pie for each singer.It goes without saying, this event is outside and it is December, so wrap up warm!

Saturday’s concert takes place 1.30pm – 2.30pm and is FREE!

100 Voices began as a community event put together to perform at the Caldmore Village Festival and we have performed at each of the three festivals with our numbers being between 16 and 84 singing on the stage.

Darryll went on:

“100 Voices is not a regular choir as such, and it has never yet reached 100 Voices!  We are more of a ‘scratch’ choir open to absolutely anyone irrespective of age, experience or even ability!
For that reason, I have no idea how many there will be of us singing Carols, but that is part of the fun!  We just enjoy meeting together to sing and have no visions of grandeur.”

Bath Street Band are made up mainly of the members of the music team from Bath Street Church in Caldmore plus a couple of friends.  They have performed as the Bath Street Band for around 3 years now, playing in various pubs, Caldmore Village Festival and Mela, different churches and recently they competed in the ‘Live Band of The Year’ contest at The Robin 2 music venue in Bilston. Playing a wide variety of music, their style has been defined as ‘Christian folk/rock’.
