This will be invaluable when preparing for examinations and future festivals, and will give vital experience and confidence in facing challenges in life ...

'Formed in 1945 and gave its first performance in Dudley Town Hall on the 29th December. They performed Handel's Messiah under the baton of the founder Dr Mainwaring. Since then there have been seven conductors. In that first performance there were 114 ladies and 70 gentlemen. Today we have a more modest chorus of approximately 30 members. However we would always welcome new members! In the past we have had orchestral accompaniment, but this became too unwieldy as well as too expensive ...'
