Wednesday 7th December 2005

This sparkling charity concert compered by the Rev Howard Ketton delighted a packed Minster audience.

Hosted by an on-form Carlton Male Voice Choir and featuring the talents of Carlton Brass, conducted by Tony Wilson, and the Lace City Singers, led by Glenn Chaney, this, the fourth Macmillan concert, brought together more than 160 singers and musicians.

Carlton Brass played in rousing style and cornet player Steve Parker’s solo, Tender Loving Care, was brilliant.

The 60-strong male voice choir conducted by Terry Moore and accompanied by Roger Holland enriched proceedings.

Fresh from their visit to Detroit for the Sweet Adelines International Convention, the Lace City Singers showed why they are regarded as one Britain’s finest barbershop choirs. They dazzled generally and showed real class with Anthem from the musical Chess.
