Be advised that Keighley Vocal Union (KVU), whose membership includes several current and former Silsden residents, are one of three choirs being featured on an ITV "South Bank Show" documentary based on Yorkshire being a UK stronghold area where the singing of Handel's "Messiah" is still very much an annual event.

The special programme coincides with the 250th anniversary of Handel's death. Some of the Silsdeners were interviewed by the production crew, who also travelled with the choir to an away gig and captured some of the social scene surrounding the actual performance.

The programme will be broadcast on Easter Sunday, 12th April. Time not known at time of writing.

Messiah: The South Bank ShowSunday 12 April
10:40pm - 11:40pm
ITV1 Yorkshire

A film which takes a fresh look at Handel's great oratorio through the performances of three very different choirs in Yorkshire - the Huddersfield Choral Society, Keighley Vocal Union and the gay and lesbian choir The Sacred Wing from Leeds. Choirs are very much about friendship, bringing together young and old and amateur and professional. Handel's instantly recognisable masterpiece has the power to do just this. We follow the three choirs through their preparations in the run up to their separate performances.
