The Choir’s Festival Concert is over for another year. Thanks to a tremendous amount of work by everyone concerned it has been another very successful concert:

The concert was a sell-out. – if our audience saw some empty seats it was because we had asked the Albert hall staff to put more chairs out as their regular seating was fully booked, the additional 40/50 seats were not all eventually needed.

The Choir members had all worked really hard to learn the music and the words and we are sure it showed in the production.

We had great help from various quarters, Jenny and Sandra Musgrove, and Jean Walker in the foyer kiosk, dealing with ticket sales, CDs and memorabilia sales.

Our Choir President, Colin Bailey and his wife Glennys received our guests after they had been escorted through by the last Choir Chairman Mike Curtis, and a few helpers.

Terry Moore, the Choir MD and Roger Holland Assistant MD and 1st Choir accompanist, along with John Sellars the Choir accompanist were all in top form. As was Rev. Howard Ketton with his usual brilliant relaxed method in the Master of Ceremonies role.

We all thank John & Sue Brydon for sponsoring the Music Maker Trophy and handing a cheque for £500 to Laura Roberts this years brilliant winning artiste.

There are others not mentioned I am sure, but a successful night like this was doesn’t just happen, it takes allot of hard work by many people.

If you missed this year’s concert and/or if you would like to put the date of next year’s Festival Concert in your diary, it will be on the 26 April 2014, here at the Albert Hall, once again a 7.15pm start. The artistes on this occasion will be a duo called Siren Sisters A blonde, brunette and red head combo from Wales crooning tunes from the 40′s. Think blue birds, white cliffs and apple blossom …. Following in the footsteps of the Andrews, Boswell and Dinning Sisters, this titillating trio, and their fabulous live band, will have you tapping your toes and humming along to the nostalgic tunes of yesteryear.  Retro red lips, silk stockings, milk and honey harmonies and two of them are real sisters.

As a foot note: gentlemen, if you feel that you would like to join the Choir then please contact us, we are always looking for new members.
