Another Busy Year

Every year is a busy one for the Police Choir and 2017, the choir's 60th will be no exception, which landmark the choristers plan to celebrate in style. More information will be released as events are confirmed, but everyone will have their own special memories of the Golden Jubilee celebrations a decade ago. A Diamond Jubilee deserves a Spectacular Event and one is already booked in for Saturday, October 28th in the magnificent surroundings of Hereford Cathedral, the setting for some of the Police Choir's most memorable performances over six decades. Full details will be announced shortly.

Several new members have joined the choir in the last couple of years, maintaining our strength at a healthy 62. More are always welcome and anyone interested is invited to come along to a Tuesday evening rehearsal at 7pm in the Shirehall (not July/August). You do not have to read music - just the desire to sing.

The choir will be recording a new CD of its favourite songs early in the New Year and it should be available by the end of February from

Michael Davis,
3 Seward James Close, Bodenham, Hereford HR1 3LS. (Tel: 01568 797187)
.

The CDs will also be on sale at The Outback in Church Street, Hereford. Their last CD, ‘Still Standing in Song’ was a sellout. One of the highlights of the year will be a tour to Germany to sing alongside the Magdebourg Police Choir who thrilled the audience at our 2015 annual concert in the Shirehall.

Being so close to the Welsh border, the choir has a tradition of marking St David's Day with a Welsh themed concert and inviting a choir from across the border to join us. This year (March 4th) our guest choir will be the Neath Male Choir, but the venue is changed from the Shirehall to Holy Trinity Church, Whitecross. And this year, especially for the English amongst us, the choir will be celebrating St George's Day with a concert at Woolhope Church on Saturday, April 22th at 7pm.
