A community choir will celebrate ten years together later this month with an anniversary concert.
Kings Langley Community Choir will present To The Power Of Ten on October 26 at Kings Langley School to an audience which will include Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Robert Voss, the Choir’s Honorary Patron, Sir Mike Penning MP and the Mayor of Dacorum, Rosie Sutton.
Also attending will be Cllr. Bob McLean, in his capacity as Chair of The Waterside Centre, the local charity which the choir has nominated to support through the concert.
Ben Crawley has been the choir’s musical director since 2012 and said he is looking forward to the anniversary concert.
He commented “The Choir has had a remarkable journey in the past ten years. Not only has it established a local reputation for strong harmonious singing but the standard achieved by the members, many of whom join with little or no musical background, has deservedly carried them into national venues such as The Royal Festival Hall, the Cadogan Hall and The Roundhouse.
“To The Power Of Ten will be an opportunity to perform some of the most popular songs from the Choir’s back catalogue as well as more recent additions to the repertoire.”
The choir was co-founded by Joy Mendelsohn, then Head of Music at Kings Langley School, and the late Iris Rattle.
The concert will see the choir accompanied by a band for the first time. Badje are led by Joy Mendelsohn. The Choir is also grateful for the sponsorship provided by two local businesses, Kings Langley Building Supplies and Haart Estate Agents.
