Hiring the choir for particular occasions

Why not think about hiring the Orpheus for your wedding or civil partnership celebration? Members of the choir regularly sing at weddings.They can make your special day even more memorable, by not only providing the perfect atmosphere but also reinforcing the congregation’s sometimes – it has to be admitted – muted performance of the hymns!

Examples of works performed recently include Rutter’s “Gaelic Blessing”, Ave Marias by Bach/Gounod and Schubert, Bach’s “Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring”, and folk songs like “The Water of Tyne”. With sufficient warning from you, our repertoire is limitless.

We also perform at more general functions, and enjoy delighting guests with a lighter programme of folk and part songs, madrigals and solos.

Also – and we appreciate that this is not usually the kind of performance you may like to think about or for which to plan – why not consider hiring a small part of the Orpheus choir for a funeral? It may be that a favourite piece of music is in our repertoire, or that we simply help out the congregation with the hymns.

If you are interested, please email us at info@hexham-orpheus-choir.org.uk and give us brief details of the event, date and a contact number. We will get in touch to discuss your requirements in more detail and – especially with weddings if contacted well in advance – we can tailor our contribution to your exact wishes and taste.
