CRADLEY Heath Male Voice Choir, one of the oldest in the area, are entering an exciting phase in their 102-year history.

They will have the Dudley Canal's Singing Cavern living up to its name when they perform there at 7.30pm on Saturday, May 17. Tickets are £10.80 which includes the travel into and out of the cavern in one of Dudley Canal Trust's special electric tunnel tripping boats.

Tickets are available from the Dudley Canal Trust Trips offices in person or by calling 0121 557 6265. The choir are also honoured to host the English Association of Male Voice Choirs' Annual Charity Concert at Brierley Hill Civic Hall on June 21, where more than 200 choristers from nine choirs will raise the roof in song. Guest artists are Ian and Lynn Fox, brother and sister vocalists originally from Clent, and Garry Bell, a trumpet soloist from Cradley Heath.

The compere is the well known TV presenter Peter Thomlinson and the choirs will be under the batons of Philippa Brettell and Liam Hodgetts, Cradley Heath's dynamic duo. Our accompanist will be Cynthia Partridge. The two charities who will benefit from the concert are the Birmingham Children's Hospital, Maxillo-facial ward and the Mary Stevens Hospice.

Tickets (£10) are available from David Cormell on 01384 393067.

As always, the choir is seeking to attract new members and any gentlemen interested are invited to attend one of our rehearsals on Monday evenings 7.30-9.30pm at Dudley Wood Methodist Church Hall, Quarry Road.
