The Dalesmen Singers MVC   

Royal Albert Hall Concert: The Dalesmen Singers from Danby and Castleton Ladies Singing for pleasure Choir were invited to participate at the Royal Albert Hall, London, in a Gala Concert of music to raise money for Cancer Research on Saturday, 3rd November. The Festival of Brass and Voices, running now for more than three decades, has raised a staggering amount of money over this period. This year, Brass Bands were The Cory Band and Grimethorpe Colliery Band. Sixty choirs from around the country took part with a special International flavour added by choirs from Sweden, Spain and the Netherlands taking part in this celebration of music. With a total seating capacity of 5, 500, the packed house were soon settled for Mr William Relton to once again take charge in his own inimitable style, his amazing passion for his beloved bands and music immediately capturing everyone`s imagination. Too many highlights in the evening to mention here, but one certainly stood out. As `Calm is the Sea` began everyone in choir and audience switched their lapel twinklers on, lights dimmed, a spotlight spearing down onto the brilliant red, gold and black of the Brass Bands uniform as they launched into a masterful performance, the vast auditorium bathed in a swaying, twinkling light. Superb entertainment. The final song was the rousing, flag waving composition by Edgar, `Land of Hope and Glory` a fitting finale to a a memorable night.           See Pictures PLUS ADDITIONAL PICS
