'The Choir has developed a substantial portfolio of songs from a wide range of musical genres. Some you will recognize as typical "Male Voice" favourites but others you might not immediately associate with choirs at all. Each year, our Musical Director ... introduces new songs, a number of which he has completely re-arranged to suit a 4 part male choir. Quite a challenge when you consider some songs were originally performed by solo artists, a number of them female. The choir will normally perform around 14 songs in each concert, supplemented by performances from guest artists, both instrumental and vocal.'
