It was a beautiful sunny day in Northampton’s Abington Park. A large crowd gathered to hear the Northampton Male Voice Choir give a marathon performance over 3 hours this afternoon at the park’s Bandstand as part of the Northampton Bands in the Park series. Performing almost their full repertoire to an appreciative audience, who came along all decked out in full picnic regalia. There were many audience favourites in the programme and even time for an audience requested rendition of “Happy Birthday” before the choir brought a wonderful afternoon of singing to a close with the traditional Northampton Saints RFC anthem “Oh When the Saints!”

The choir now go on to get ready for a number of concerts, the main event in the Autumn calendar being the Voices & Brass concert at the Deco Theatre in Northampton on 21st November. This will be the a “to good to miss” opportunity to experience Northampton’s unique Deco Theatre hosting a music event featuring the Choir, The Virtuosi GUS Band and Northampton’s own singing sensation Faryl Smith.
