KVU Singers, a mixed voice choir based in Sutton, will hold a joint concert with Colne-based Pendle Youth Choir in aid of Cancer Research.

The summer concert will take place at Christ Church in Skipton at 2.30pm on Sunday.

KVU Singers, formed in 1906 as Keighley Vocal Union, singing both secular and sacred music, give many concerts in the local area.

Their musical director, Frank Smith, is celebrating 35 years with the choir this year and recently gave up the same position with the Nelson Arion Male Voice Choir, where he conducted for 50 years.

Pendle Youth Choir, with singers aged from 11 to 18 years, along with the Children’s Choir for ages six to ten years, evolved from the Nelson Municipal Children’s Choir, which started in 1949.

David Wilkinson, conductor of Pendle Youth Choir, recently became president of KVU Singers, thus cementing a relationship between the two choirs that has seen joint concerts before.
