Ryton Chorale

With the lack of any concerts, Ryton Chorale, like most other choirs, can’t presently meet in person, so they are again working on music for a YouTube performance. After the success of the Christmas carol concert, complete with seasonal pictures and a collage of choir members taking part, a similar format is to be launched on 31st March.
This time the music will be the much loved classic ‘All in the April Evening’, by the Scottish composer Sir Hugh Roberton. He was Britain’s leading choral master and founded the world famous Glasgow Orpheus Choir in 1906.
Challenging times call for innovation and development. Thanks to Ryton’s Director of Music, Simon Lumby, and his technological expertise the choir has risen to the new challenge. Make a note of the launch date, 31st March, and register a ‘like’!
