Join-in with Maria and the Captain

It’s impossible to watch The Sound of Music without joining in. At the Mayfield Festival you will be able to enjoy this legendary piece of musical theatre in actual ‘surround-sound’ and join-in as well. The movie plays, and the audience sings along. All the lyrics appear on-screen, and you’re encouraged to join in with every number. If your voice gives out with fatigue or emotion, Maria and the Captain will carry on for you. The hills are alive…

Hats and costumes are encouraged! We are delighted that the Mayfield Brass Youth Band will be playing an ‘Overture’ and members of MayZing Community Choir will add even more vocal strength to the songs.

Mayfield Band is a traditional brass band which has provided a musical education to countless generations of local children. The youth section has children ranging from 5 to 18, and our aim is to get kids hooked on instrumental music at an early age through an emphasis on fun and ensemble playing, and in doing so keep this great tradition alive. Beginners are always welcome, and instruments are provided. We are delighted to have this opportunity to play at the festival this year.

Mayzing Community Choir is a group of enthusiastic music lovers, ladies and gents, who just love to sing. We meet every Wednesday evening at 8.00pm in the Memorial Hall in Mayfield and anyone who shares our enjoyment of singing is welcome, we work hard but it’s always a really fun two hours. We cover a wide range of music including traditional, old and modern classics, pop and musicals and our choirmaster Ralph ‘Ginger’ Millington is always open to suggestions from members. Although it hasn’t been possible recently, we aim to stage two concerts each year, one in Spring/Summer, one at Christmas and we always consider it a real pleasure to be involved in the many projects organised by Mayfield, a village whose support has been so greatly appreciated by Mayzing over the years.
