ECMVC’s first concert outing of 2014, on Saturday 26 April, saw the choir performing at St Thomas’s Church, Somercotes, with very special guests, The Nightingales. A fine audience enjoyed an incredibly varied programme with the Nightingales providing a beautifully tuneful contrast to the power of Eastwood Collieries’ Male Voice Choir.
The concert raised a significant amount of money for the Church Funds.
At the end of the show, Chairman Ian Webster presented an engraved crystal tankard to Alan Carlin to commemorate 25 years of sterling service to the choir.
