For the most of the men, this was their very first experience of singing in public and they gave the performance of their lives for the hundreds of family, friends and supporters who came along to share the evening with them, singing The Rose, Portrait of my Love, Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves, Shenandoah, Bring Him Home, and Crossing the Bar.

They were supported by performances from Peterborough Male Voice Choir, soloist Sarah Morris of Peterborough Voices, and Peterborough Community Chorus, who sang popular favourites including Sound of Silence, The Streets of London and On The Street Where You Live.
