MACCLESFIELD Ori­ana Choir will fin­ish its 85th sea­son with a light-hearted con­cert of old favourites.

It will be con­ducted by Keith Years­ley MBE, who has led the choir for more than 50 years, be­gin­ning when he was just 25.

Keith, who is from Macclesfield and plays the or­gan at Gawsworth Church, said the con­cert will have plenty for ev­ery­one.

He said: “It’s a light hearted con­cert with a lit­tle bit of opera, a lit­tle bit of Gil­bert and Sul­li­van, some hu­mour and lots and lots of straw­ber­ries and cream!

“We also have some won­der­ful con­tri­bu­tions from tal­ented mem­bers of the choir – Janet Fox, Wendy Daven­port, Steve Thorp, Paul Shortt, Roger Hord­ley – folk singer Alan Grace and Laura Simp­son, a flautist.

“It will have some­thing for ev­ery­one.”

Andy Don­ald­son will be pro­vid­ing the ac­com­pa­ni­ment.

The per­for­mance will take place in the Macclesfield Methodist Church on Satur­day, June 13, start­ing at 7.30pm.

Tick­ets cost £10 and are avail­able from Cherry Blos­som Bak­ery, Church­side, Macclesfield.

You can also get tick­ets from any mem­ber of the Ori­ana choir or by ring­ing 01625 424215.
