The Huddersfield Singers are back in full voice after the pandemic with a Spring Concert which will raise money for the Ukraine appeal.

The Huddersfield Singers Spring Concert will be held on Saturday March 26 (7.30pm) in a new venue – the iconic Oastler Building at the University of Huddersfield.

The concert features the Leeds Haydn Players with Elizabeth Wells on flute, and the programme promises to be an interesting and unusual one.

The concert programme is entitled: ‘Gott in Hummel!’ and is a play on the German phrase ‘Gott in Himmel’ – translated as ‘God in Heaven’ – heard in many a war film.

The concert actually features a trio of Austrian composers, Hummel, Haydn and Mozart. The orchestra will also be playing some Grieg, featuring ‘The Holberg Suite.’

Pam Sykes, a spokesman for the Huddersfield Singers, said they were looking forward to the concert and added: “Covid has meant a long absence from choral singing but hopefully we’re back for good now.”

Tickets are £10 each or £4 for students and juniors. For every ticket sold, a donation will be made to the Ukrainian appeal.

Tickets are available on the door on the night and for more information go to
