On Saturday 11 June Northampton Male Voice Choir (NMVC) under its Musical Director, Stephen Bell, took part in five classes at the inaugural North Northamptonshire Music Festival and bagged a magnificent set of four, 1st place trophies including one for winning the final “Choir of Choirs” section.

Accompanied brilliantly on piano throughout the festival by Andy Poole, NMVC was awarded a near maximum 93 points in the Sacred Class by Festival Adjudicator, Irene Grant-Jones, for its outstanding, winning performance of “Let All Men Sing” (Keith Christopher) and “Canon in D” (Johann Pachelbel arr Noel Goemanne).

NMVC Chairman Mark York said “This amazing event allowed us to properly demonstrate how good the Northampton Male Voice Choir is and how versatile we have become. It is testament to the continuing hard work carried out by the choristers and music team alike. Come and see our multi award winning choir soon, we’d love to entertain you!”

NMVC’s next major event will be on Saturday 16 July when the choir, together with The Tenor Joshua S Daniel, will be supporting the world class The GUS Band in a Classical Spectacular “Picnic on the Lawn” event conducted throughout by Stephen Bell. The event will be held on University of Northampton’s Engine Shed lawn. Youth performances start at 5pm, when you can set up your picnic, and the main concert starts at 7.30pm.
