It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rob Fletcher. Rob joined the choir in 2015 - our Diamond Anniversary season - as a first tenor. He attended a few of our rehearsals and got himself fitted out with a uniform and performed with the choir at the Diamond Anniversary Concert on Saturday April 16th 2016 and almost immediately began to suffer a period of ill health and had been absent from the choir for some time.
Colin had been involved with the choir for 30 years and formed the foundation of our baritone section until his recent retirement. Music was at the heart of Colin's life and he amazed audiences with his beautiful solos. His funeral will take place at 1pm on Wednesday 31st October at Markeaton Crematorium in Derby. The memory of his baritone voice will remain in our hearts forever.
