One More Night of Lively Singing from the Dalesmen Singers in Loftus.
On Friday evening 28th November, St Leonard`s Church, Loftus, before an appreciative and well attended audience, rang to the melodic voices of the well known and popular voices of the Dalesmen Singers (Stephen Maltby – musical director and accompanist Anne Hartley) and their guests , the Castleton Ladies Choir – `Singing for Pleasure` (Musical Director Barbara Anderson and accompanist – Andrew Dyer)
The popular and well known Queen`s version `Bohemian Rhapsody` which was performed for the first time by the Dalesmen and accompanied by the brilliant pianist Anne Hartley was a great success.
Both choirs performed independently and also jointly to everyone`s enjoyment - singing Franz Schubert's Serenade and the weil known `American Trilogy`.
The evening was rounded off by a very welcome supper in Loftus Town Hall which made a very pleasant end to a lovely evenings entertainment. The event raised the sum of £340 to be shared between the Church and Loftus Mayor`s Charity
The Dalesmen Singers are always looking to recruit new singers. You may or may not have sung in a choir before but either way you will soon pick up some great songs on our current programme.
