Voices In Harmony 20th Anniversary Barn Dance
On 14 October Voices In Harmony held a barn dance for members and friends at Halesowen's Cornbow Hall as a social event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the choir. Live music for the evening was provided by Nic Penn and his band.
Voices In Harmony was formed in 1997 to perform Handel's 'Messiah' in West Bromwich Town Hall as part of the BT Voices For Hospices event that year. After the performance in October 1997 choir members decided that they wanted to continue as a choir. Hence was born Sandwell Community Choir which has evolved into the 70 strong Voices In Harmony mixed voice choir of today. There are still about 12 members who performed in 'Messiah' in 1997 including the Musical Director Stephen Bradley.
