Following on from last year's success, we are excited to be singing and competing at the 2019 Oundle Festival of Music and Drama.
The festival is well worth a visit and runs from March 30th until April 6th 2019, with the senior choir sections which we are entering taking place on April 6th.
This will again be our second competition of the year. Further details about this superb event will follow shortly.
Taking place at the Park avenue North Methodist Church, NN3 2HT, @5pm on the 19th May. We look forward to seeing you there.
To celebrate Jessica Smith's time with the choir and our incredible start to 2019, we hosted a Melody-ious evening of spectacular music.
A total of £767.91 was raised for MND!
This concert ended the year in style for the Melody Choir, where we sang our hearts out to celebrate the wonderful work the NHS do.
The concert was raising money for Northampton General Hospital (NGH), and we were lucky enough to sing alongside two other wonderful choirs; The NGH choir and Abington Community Choir.
Oundle Festival of Music & Drama
After much preparation we were so pleased with our performance at our first competition of the year. We achieved a score of 88 which we were delighted with!
For several choir members this was their first ever competition, so a huge well done to everyone, but especially them!

As our second competition of the year, we looked to build on the success of Oundle Festival and that we certainly did!
Our first class was non-competitive choirs, where we achieved superb feedback. In the second competitive class, we achieved 'highly commended', which usually equates to a score between 86 and 90.
The annual celebration of everything to do with Kettering. The choir performed a selection of our favourite pieces to the public from the Kino Lounge as part of an afternoon of local music group performances.
