The award-winning Peterborough Youth Choir will perform a mixture of choral favourites, ballads and show tunes at Buckden Towers on Sunday.

The more than 100-strong choir has credits to its name including singing with legendary soprano Lesley Garrett and the late Bernie Nolan. It has also featured in national tours of Evita and filmed for Songs of Praise.

The concert programme includes pieces such as As Long As He Needs Me from Oliver!, swing tune Chattanooga Choo Choo, plus ballads You Raise Me Up and Wind Beneath My Wings.

This year, only the Peterborough Youth Choir girls will visit Buckden. Upcoming dates for the PYC include a recital alongside the Black Dyke Band on April 11 and with The King’s Singers on May 30, at The Broadway Theatre in the city.

INFORMATION: Starts at 6.30pm. Tickets £6, and free for under 14s on the door. Tickets from £12 for the Black Dyke Band show and from £15 for The King’s Singers performance from 0333 6663366 or www.peterboroughmvchoir.org.uk.
