A CHORAL group based in Ellesmere Port is achieving national acclaim.
The Singers Without A Name, known as Swansong, featured in a recent edition of the Sunday Telegraph, who strongly urged people in the area to “catch them while you can”.
The group, formed at a Picnic in the Park event at Wirral’s Poulton Hall in July 2007, consists of 16 professional or highly experienced singers and rehearse weekly at a base in Rossmore Road West.
They are currently planning their second CD release following the success of their debut offering.
The group’s repertoire ranges from Vivaldi and Mozart to Beatles and Broadway via Abba and Queen.
Its diversity has resulted in them performing at a host of events, many of which have helped to raise thousands of pounds for charities.
Conductor Jane Lennie explained: “The focus of the group is to assist needy causes in any way it can.
“Despite being heavily committed throughout the year, up to and including December 2009, Swansong are eager to help where they can and are particularly keen to hear from struggling causes in the immediate area.”
So far the group has helped raise much-needed funds for the likes of Ellesmere Port Masonic, The Wirral Autistic Society and several churches in the Cheshire and Merseyside area.
They will be performing at Sycamore Garden Centre on November 29 and Ellesmere Port Civic Hall with the Lynn McKenzie School of Dancing on December 15 and 16.
Other shows take place at Heswall Rotary on November 13 and Blakemere Craft Centre on November 16, and December 13 and 21.
