Jersey October 1999

In October 1999 the choir visited the island of Jersey to compete in the inaugural International Choir Festival of Jersey. This was a great experience, with opportunities to tour the island as well as taking part in choral workshops, concerts and the actual competition. We heard some of the best choral singing in Europe and we were delighted to be part of such an exciting occasion. After the tension of competition the event finished with a huge party, when all the choirs were conducted by one of the adjudicators, Roy Wales, in an impromptu performance of the 'Hallelujah Chorus' from Handel's Messiah.

No, we didn't win, but we learnt a lot from the weekend that will be remembered and used in the future!
