Belper Singers will be performing a concert entitled Songs For Peace on Saturday, October 26.

The concert takes place at Christchurch, Belper, and starts at 7.30pm.

With the centenary next year of the start of World War One, the long-established group, which has been running for around 30 years now, has decided on a theme of peace for the concert. The choir will be raising funds for the Red Cross and running a raffle at the concert.

Belper Singers are conducted by Mitchell Holland, who has been musical director since 2012, and the accompanist is Kevin Stannard. Pieces to be performed will include Karl Jenkins’s choral suite The Armed Man.

Tickets are £6.50 and refreshments will be available.
