FINAL arrangements are coming together for Warrington Male Voice Choir’s first virtual concert.

On Saturday, August 15 the choir will perform a set on Youtube with the virtual curtain going up from 3pm.

Since going into lockdown, the choir have held virtual rehearsals and undertaken virtual performances, so a virtual concert was the obvious next stage for the members.

The concert will feature a message from patron Terry Waite CBE and performances by the choir, including two with the choristers in full uniform for those supporters who have missed seeing them live.

The concert is also being used as a fundraiser for the choir.

Over the years, even during lockdown, the choir has raised money for many charities.

However, like many others in the performing arts, the choir hasn’t performed live in front of a paying audience since the lockdown started.

The choir is hoping that once the concert is released, viewers will enjoy it and consider making a donation - however large or small - to choir funds, via the choir’s Just Giving page at
