The wait is over!

We have taken delivery of our latest CD and wow is it a cracker.

Featuring our famous big medleys of Jekyll & Hyde Overture, Star Wars Fantasia and one of the most popular of Ivan’s arrangements, Les Miserables. We pay tribute to Cilla Black and feature a wide repertoire of music from film, stage and the big bands. For the first time on CD we are joined by our very own soprano Elizabeth Phillips, who regular audience members will know from our Festival of Remembrance shows. More

2018 sees the centenary of the end of ‘The War to End All Wars’ and to commemorate this momentous occasion we are holding two very special Remembrance concerts this year. We are back again at the Plaza in Stockport hosting our own fabulous Remembrance show at 2:00pm on Sunday 4th November and the following week at Altrincham Town Hall on the 10th November at 7:15pm for a smaller yet just as fitting tribute to the sacrifices made 100 years ago.

Tickets are available for the 4th Nov from the Box Office at the Plaza and for the 10th Nov from Jean Brookes 0161 903 9906. Only 70 tickets are available for this show so will sell out fast.

We hope to see you there.
