Buxton with a New Twist

 

We’re off to Buxton again on 20 July and this time there’s a bit of twist. We’re trying to get some funding from Ticket Source, the company that handles our on-line ticket sales.


 

Ordsall Acappella Singers


Ordsall Acappella Singers started as a community project engaging the locals of Ordsall and persuading them to sing. Over fifteen years later, countless concerts, competitions, a number of competition wins, songs and rehearsals we have a choir that can perform at any occasion. Now a registered charity, we aim to foster the love of choral music by encouraging people to join us and sing with us and by providing enjoyable performances for the local and the wider community. Often we are able to support other organisations with fund-raising efforts by singing at their events.    

 

 

Event name

Simply Acappella (and cake)

We are offering two concerts on 20 July 2024 as part of the Buxton Fringe Festival:

·         10.30 am at the United Reformed Church, Hardwick Square East, Buxton SK17 6PT 

·         3.00 pm at St Mary’s Church, Dale Road, Buxton SK17 6NL (This one with cake!)

We certainly enjoy singing and we aim to spread that joy to our audiences, maybe challenging them to get involved in singing themselves. In fact, it’s certain; there will be some audience participation. 

Our repertoire will be a mixture of old favourites and some of the much newer material we’ve been rehearsing recently.  Our singers will include those who have been going to Buxton since 2010 and newer choir members who have joined us in recent months.

What will the funds be used for?

In order to cover the cost of our event we have to had to charge for tickets. We are aware that this may exclude some participants – those on low incomes, those living with disability, those in full time education and disadvantaged community members.  We would like to be able to offer such community members a free ticket.

 

How will your event strengthen you community?

Listening to and joining in singing are uplifting activities that can enhance mental health.  Activities of this nature are very much needed at the moment and probably particularly by that section of the community we seek to support. Supplying free tickets will make us more inclusive and remove some of the barriers to participation, thus helping to ensure that the whole community is represented.  It leads towards a happier and healthier community.
