New Mill Male Voice Choir is performing for one night to raise money for a Scarborough charity.

The choir will join local vocal ensemble Manhattan Voices at the Citadel, Alma Parade, Scarborough, on Saturday April 12 at 7.30pm. The concert, A Special Evening of Song, is in aid of the Special Care Baby Unit at Scarborough Hospital.

Manhattan Voices’ musical director Sue Hartley said: “This promises to be a very special evening. There’s something magical about the sound of a male voice choir. The West Riding of Yorkshire has a strong tradition of choral and brass band music, and my earliest musical memories are of being taken to the Victoria Hall in Halifax to hear the Choral Society and the Black Dyke Mills Band along with the various male voice choirs in the Huddersfield area. I have known one of the New Mill’s members for over 40 years! We are very excited to be performing with them.”

Local opera student Nathan Jenkins will also be performing in the concert. Nathan, who is studying opera at the Royal Northern College of Music, has sung with Manhattan Voices as a soloist for five years. A
