Featherston gentlemen singers

October 15, 2020 October 2020 No Comments

It’s been a rather different year for the Featherston Gentlemen Singers. Covid and social distancing have meant that the choir has not had as much singing time together as usual. Sadly their biennial concert with Japanese Chor Farmer in September was put on hold, perhaps until late 2021.

However, keen to sing in public again, a slightly truncated choir will join the Songbirds, an all female group of nine years standing, in two concerts, one in the Kiwi Hall, Featherston and the other at Rosewood Chapel, Masterton.

As in 2019 when they first debuted together in the Greytown Town Hall, both choirs will present an eclectic mix of songs as well as some combined numbers. These range from music theatre, to traditional Maori, to folk and pop with some interesting and varied settings.

October also sees the Featherston Gentlemen Singers’ 16th birthday.  As they enter their seventeenth year there has been some discussion about a name change to the Songbeards  beard growing being yet another unexpected result of Covid. Mercifully the jury is still out on this one.

The Featherston Gentlemen Singers in Concert with the Songbirds.

Kiwi Hall, Featherston, Saturday October 10, 4pm

Rosewood Chapel, Queen St, Masterton, Sunday October 11, 4pm

Tickets $10
