Todmorden Choral Society performs its Summer Concert – Songs with a Shakespearean theme on Saturday July 2 (7.30pm) at Central Methodist Church.

The choir will be joined by actors Claire Benedict and Anthony Peter who will add contributions between the musical items with sonnets by Shakespeare and extracts from some of his plays.

Musical Director Antony Brannick said: “I’m delighted Claire and Ant can be part of this occasion and the spoken word will provide a contrast to the music.

“I hope it will also complement and enhance the occasion in which we celebrate this country’s most famous writer and dramatist. ”

The audience will be treated to works like Brush up your Shakespeare, West Side Story, Selected English Pastoral Part songs and lots more. Admission is by donations at the door.
