Magnificent Macclesfield

Macclesfield Male Voice Choir came to town in what turned out to be another highly successful joint concert, held at the William Brookes School on Saturday 13th July. Both choirs combined outstandingly to produce a number of joint songs that included ‘The Song of the Jolly Roger’, ‘Bring Him Home’ from Les Miserables and the African National Anthem ‘African Prayer’, in a real musical treat for the audience. The concert was a fitting tribute to Pauline Davies, Macclesfields Associate Conductor, who leaves their choir this week after 7 years dedicated work.
The Macclesfield Choir was formed over 55 years ago and has toured Canada, Germany, Denmark, Ireland and the Czech Republic, winning a Bronze Award at the Prague Festival of Advent Music in 2006. In 2011 the choir won the Male Voice Competition at the Isle of Man Festival of Choirs. Their accompanist is Ukranian born Tetiana Goncharuk, who took her first piano lesson aged 5 years and performed publicly aged 7 at the local television station in Ukraine. She made her concerto debut at the age of 12 and won first prize in an International Piano Competition for Young Pianists in 2006, joining the Macclesfield Choir in 2007.
A magnificent concert thoroughly enjoyed by the audience, and a great way to end the season. Much Wenlock has the prospect of a busy and exciting Autumn, with a trip to Tamar Valley in October and a host of other events, see our events page for further details.
