AN ALCESTER choir will be hitting the high notes with fans to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
The Alcester Male Voice Choir will mark the milestone by holding a gala concert at Symphony Hall in Birmingham next April.
The group, founded and still directed by Redditch resident Judith Land in 1974, now has over 80 men.
It has travelled and performed all over the UK including on the Christmas edition of BBC Countryfile at Ragley Hall as well as raising thousands of pounds for charities, churches and groups in the area.
Ms Land said: “After 40 years, I still get the greatest pleasure from teaching my choir, made up of gentlemen of differing abilities, to sing a wide variety of songs and through their hard work and dedication bring them up to professional concert standard.”
The concert will take place on April 5 next year and will also see performances by the Welsh Guards Fanfare Trumpeters, Craig Yates from Only Men Aloud, Andrew Fletcher on the organ and the Rutleigh Norris Ballet School.
