This may come as something of a surprise or even a shock but The City of Sheffield Teachers’ Choir celebrated its 50th Anniversary in November 2018.
There are still many people who owe a great deal to David Clover who founded the choir in November 1968, whether professionally, musically or socially, and belonging to the Teachers’ Choir, whether in the past or in the present, has provided us with enormous pleasure. I am sure David would be extremely proud of the choir’s achievements over the last 50 years. We have certainly something to celebrate!
Our plans for the anniversary included a celebration dinner and concert. The dinner, with a fun auction, was held on Saturday 6 October, at Tapton Hall, Shore Lane, Sheffield, and the concert was at 7.30pm on Saturday 10 November, at Holy Trinity Church, Grove Road, Millhouses, Sheffield.
The concert pieces highlighted significant events in the choir’s half century and included “Zadok the Priest” and the first and last choruses of Vivaldi’s 'Gloria'.
