Music in the Vale originated in 1985 in the format of free concerts to allow locals to display their various talents. In 1992 the Vale Council approached the Committee with a request to organise an annual musical competition for the youth of the Vale which was to embrace both singers and instrumentalists. It has evolved to its present format as a competition of significant standing over the years since then.
Music in the Vale is a Charitable Organisation.
Music in the Vale is run by a friendly volunteer committee who give freely of their time and expertise. Over the year the members meet to review and evaluate the annual competition and other performance opportunities, discuss ideas for fundraising and sponsorship and to recruit new members.
On the competition weekend itself, additional helpers are needed to join with the committee members to assist in the smooth running of the auditions, supervision of warm ups, run-throughs with the accompanist and of course keep the tea urn on the boil.
If you would like to join us as a volunteer please contact us.
