The Sunday Boys, Manchester’s all-male voice singing sensation, are back for their annual concert, offering an evening of contemporary-style singing and top notch entertainment at Fairfield Social Club at the end of July.
The Boys surprise younger audiences with their unique take on choral singing and worked hard to reinvent some modern popular classics. They will be singing some of their absolute favourites to celebrate their third anniversary.
Expect unique renditions of pop hits such as Fire with Fire by Scissor Sisters, Small-town Boy by Bronski Beat and This Woman's Work by Kate Bush.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to bring this exciting and eclectic programme to such a brilliant space as Fairfield Social Club with an unexpectedly beautiful acoustic, especially for choral singing.” says musical director, Michael Betteridge.
“It will bring to life brand new popular, classical and contemporary arrangements for songs such as the Appalachian folk song Pretty Saro, Visions of Gideon by Sufjan Stevens and the haunting Ubi Caritas by Ola Gjeilo.”
Established composer, Michael started the choir in 2016 wanting to create a new male voice choir to brighten up Sunday evenings by bringing gay men and their allies together to sing exceptionally.
The Sunday Boys, who wowed audiences internationally, consider that the words are just as important as the music itself. They are unique in the way they develop their own arrangements of modern, contemporary songs, and often collaborate with poets and composers that have strong stories to tell.
On the back of their successful tour of Iceland in 2018, The Sunday Boys now have plans to collaborate with other choirs around the world, exploring opportunities to perform in places in Europe, Canada and the United States.
“I am very excited to show Manchester and our international audiences what The Sunday Boys, who have high expectations of themselves, can do. The choir is non-auditioned, and challenges the idea that you have to be a professional singer to have high artistic ambitions.”
The Sunday Boys are looking forward to seeing you on the 28th July at 6pm at The Fairfield in Manchester. A short preview of their concert can also be experienced during Manchester International Festival at Festival Square on Sunday 21 July at 12.30pm.
