Past Community Events

Peterborough Take Note enjoys performing at local community events, particularly fund-raising ventures. The choir has sung at a choir member’s wedding, an anniversary party and a summer fete, and has also had information stalls at many local summer festivals. At Christmas we have sung carols in shops, sheltered housing, a restaurant, and at a 1940’s themed Festive Fayre at the City College.  During the past year the choir has performed three times at Peterborough Cathedral in the Wednesdays At One series.

Over the years the Choir has taken part in the following larger community events and concerts:

  • John Rutter – Nottingham – February 2023

    Choir trip to Nottingham to join other choirs for a singing day, pieces included Hallelujah Chorus by Handel, Look to the Day by Rutter, Jerusalem by Perry

  • John Rutter Workshop – Nottingham – February 2021

    Choir trip to Nottingham for John Rutter workshop

  • Peterborough Cathedral, Wednesdays at One: February & July 2019

    The choir has been fortunate enough to appear twice in 2019 in Peterborough Cathedral’s Wednesdays at One Series.  Both occasions were very much enjoyed by choir and audience alike.  For choir members it is a huge privilege to have the opportunity to sing in such a wonderful setting. A highlight was performing Jerusalem to the accompaniment of the Cathedral organ played by Adam Wilson.

  • Ken Stimpson Choral Spectacular: March 2019

    A very relaxed and enjoyable evening, members were able to watch other singers perform and the highlight for everyone was the finale when around 150 singers joined together to sing.

  • Love Came Down at Christmas (Vocalize Concert): December 2015

    christmas_gift_187449 2The choir travelled to London to join with other choirs in singing in the beautiful St James’ Church in Sussex Gardens.  The concert was led by two expert choral conductors, Hilary Campbell and Richard Harker, and Peterborough Take Note was one of six choirs, each doing its own set of two or three pieces.  We performed Gloria, All Bells in Paradise and Let it Snow, the latter particularly was met with rapturous applause. At the end of the first half all the choirs joined together to sing Jingle Bells and then at the end of the concert we all sang Love Came Down at Christmas and Angels We Have Heard On High. Everyone was very friendly and supportive, and it was most enjoyable evening.

  • Salvation Army Community Carol Concert: December 2015

    In this enjoyable community event, Peterborough Take Note performed a few of their own songs and joined in with the Salvation Army Choir and Band (and audience) to sing some popular Christmas carols.

  • Guide Dogs for the Blind Winter Festival: December 2015

    This fund-raising concert gave the choir the opportunity to sing in Peterborough Cathedral. This was a wonderful experience, particularly for a choir that has only been performing for two years.  The main Choir was joined by Club 73, and the Consort group performed two songs.

  • Metal’s Harvest Event: September 2015

    The choir provided entertainment for 500 guests who were enjoying a harvest meal as part of arts organisation, Metal’s, Harvest Event. We sang three songs with renowned folk singer, Robin Grey, on topics related to the countryside and land reform, including the very enjoyable Three Acres and a Cow.
