The municipality of Vught lies just to the south of s’Hertogenbosch in the southern Netherlands. The Vughts Mannenkoor (Vught Male Voice Choir) was founded in 1917, making it one of the oldest associations in the community. The choir has approximately 70 members and has received several awards, most recently the prestigious Heinze Prize from the Royal Dutch Association of Choirs, marking its 90th anniversary in 2007. Since 2002 it has been directed by Coen Swinkels, a graduate of the Brabant Conservatorium in Tilburg and a well-known Dutch choirmaster.
As part of its 2014 tour to England, the Vught Male Voice Choir will be performing at All Saints’ Church, St Ives on Saturday 31 May at 7.30 p.m. They will present a mixed programme of religious and secular music, including pieces by Schubert, Handel, Saint-Saëns, Puccini, Gilbert and Sullivan and Vangelis. There’s something for everyone, so do come and enjoy this very special evening of music.
