Berwick Male Voice Choir continue their winter season of concerts on Friday February 19, when they will appear at Kirknewton Village Hall near Wooler, starting at 7.30pm.

The event is being organised by the local hall committee in aid of Great North Air Ambulance.

Tickets, which include cheese and wine, are priced at £10 and can be purchased in advance at T. W. Brand, Newsagents, Wooler, or by calling 01890 850285.

Included in the programme will be a mixture of well known songs that regular followers of the choir will be familiar with, and a number of songs that the choir will be singing for the first time in public.

It promises to be a marvellous evening of music 
with a programme that will suit a wide range of musical tastes.

2016 is shaping up to be a very busy year for the choir as around 15 concerts have been scheduled, including a Four Choirs concert at Norham Parish Church, Norham, on March 12, and a Gala concert at St Andrews, Wallace Green, Berwick, on April 9.

On April 10, there will be a CD recording session at St Andrews in Berwick.

The choir is also looking forward to undertaking a short concert tour to Berwick’s twin town, Sarpsborg in Norway, in August.

The concert in Kirknewton is a wonderful opportunity to hear this renowned choir in intimate surroundings. Not to be missed.
