WGC Male Voice Choir in Vauxhall anniversary concert
We were privileged and delighted to take part in a nearly 200-voice massed concert at Dunstable on Saturday, June 15th 2013. We were one of five choirs celebrating the seventieth anniversary of the Vauxhall Male Voice Choir. The programme consisted of sixteen pieces, ranging from When the Saints go Marching In to Battle Hymn of the Republic, and an audience-participation finale, Jerusalem. The other invited MVCs were Wycombe Orpheus, Brighton Welsh and Croydon.
There were solo spots for soprano Lynn Deacon and organist James Banville. The concert was enthusiastically received by the 250-strong audience. Afterwards the five choirs gathered at Dunstable Leisure Centre for an afterglow and prize-giving.
