Future Guest Performers

Musicology Vocal group

Musicology was founded in April 1994 as a “one-off” group to provide entertainment for a village concert. However, so successful was the event that the Group remained together, and over 25 years later we still enjoy what we do. Our repertoire ranges from light classics to popular songs – basically anything with a “good tune”.
Comments from past performances include: ‘What a lovely evening we had…..it was perfect for the occasion’; ‘You really did make the evening go with a zing’; ‘You are a very talented group and your performance was much appreciated’.
