After a 6 month programme of concerts with local choirs, the choirs long-serving conductor (50 years, no less) bids farewell with a choral concert featuring The Arion and Frank's 'other choir' the KVU SINGERS. Over many years Frank has been at the helm of not just the Arion, but also conductor and musical director of the mixed voice choir, KVU Singers. Frank took over both choirs, both Arion and KVU, from his father Jack, so it is fitting that for his final concert the two choirs should join in one final choral extravaganza. The programme will consist of many of Frank's favourite pieces, so come along and enjoy a magical evening of choral singing.
After the concert everyone, choir audience and friends are invited to an informal party, what the Cornish choirs call an 'afterglow', when all can reminisce and congratulate Frank on his achievements. There will, of course, be a more formal event in the autumn to celebrate all that Frank has done for the choir and for music in Pendle, and details of this will be published soon.
Tickets for Franks Farewell Concert are available now from Allan Walker 07944822102, or firstname.lastname@example.org or from any choir member. The cost tales place on SATURDAY 24TH JUNE AT 7.30PM at ST THOMAS' CHURCH, BARROWFORD and the price is a very modest £7.50.
