CARLTON MALE VOICE CHOIR’S INVOLVEMENT IN THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS OF THE NOTTINGHAM/KARLSRUHE TWINNING ARRANGEMENTS
Carlton Male Voice Choir was founded 110 years ago and since this time has held a prominent position in the Nottingham area as one of the very well respected choirs – not only enjoying their singing but raising large sums of money for charities. Their singing numbers have varied over the years but currently have a singing membership of about eighty. They have a varied repertoire of songs and perform at a series of concerts throughout the year. Their concert programme commences each year with their Festival Concert held at the Albert Hall – when they introduce their new repertoire.
For many years they have arranged concert tours both within this country and abroad, and this has provided the opportunity for them to sing with local choirs and of course host them on return visits. Karslruhe, Nottingham’s twin city, is one which they have a close relationship – having visited them in 1996 and again in June 2018 – when they took part in a very successful joint concert in the Stadkirche in Karlsruhe. They are delighted to be hosting the KIT Kammerchor and Philarmonic Orchestra (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology Choir and Orchestra) as part of the 50th Anniversary of the twinning arrangements between the two cities. The highlight of their visit will be a joint concert at St Mary’s Church, Lace Market, Nottingham commencing at 7.30pm on Friday 4th October 2019. Tickets will be on public sale and they will be delighted to welcome you to what will be an interesting evening of music enjoyed in the spirit of friendship between the two cities.
