During the weekend we have visits from:-
Around 11am St Michael’s Church Bells will ring in the Festival with a quarter peal
2pm – The Community Singing Group will be performing in the Baptist Church
7pm – The Grosmont Kitchen Singers will be performing in St Michael’s Church
Grosmont’s KITCHEN SINGERS began life seven years ago when nine ‘singers’ sat around the kitchen table of Upper House on a Sunday evening just for the pleasure of a little singing together and enjoying music. The picture has changed a little today and they now number around twenty-four when all are present – and they usually are: the loyalty of this choir is remarkable. The Kitchen Singers have widened their repertoire over the years and today they aim to present at least two concerts each year in Grosmont accompanied by strings and other instruments as required – and assisted by friends and supporters who provide the back up that such a programme demands.
The KITCHEN SINGERS are delighted to have been invited to bring their Spring Concert to Ewyas Harold as a part of the Spring Festival of the Arts. They will be directed by their regular trainer and inspirer – Jean Cooper Smith – and soloists are mainly drawn from the ranks of the choir. Grosmont is a small village but we have been more than fortunate to have found so many committed singers and lovers of music all around us.
The Kingstone Community Choir performing a repertoire in St Michael’s Church.
Kingstone Community Choir return again to sing at St. Michael’s church following their appearance at the previous festival and a charity concert in November 2017.
The choir, led by the talented Jacob Ashworth will bring a mixture of old and new songs to the concert ranging from Abba to Calon Lan (always a favourite in these parts!).
They look forward to entertaining the audience on Sunday 26th May at 3pm.
