Christmas Concert 2019 - "Music for a Winter's Night"

Wednesday, 19 December 2018

Another wonderful concert last night at the beautiful St Nicolas' Church in Swindon Lane. It was the first with our new Musical Director, Sandra Burne, and was thoroughly enjoyed by choir and audience alike. The choir sang a programme of Christmas songs and carols, and were joined by guest harpist Mark Harmer, whose programme was hauntingly beautiful as always. There was also a lovely flute duet from our Musical Director and choir member Sarah Gray, and Sarah also delighted the audience with "The Snowman".

Farewell and thank you!

Last night we said goodbye and thank you to Jane Ward Watts, our lovely Musical Director for the past 3 and a half years. She took us on despite her incredibly busy work schedule, and we have benefitted hugely from her skill, expertise and musicality. Now we are pleased to welcome Sandra Burne as our new MD, and know that she will continue Jane's work helping us to continue onwards and upwards.

So thank you so much for everything, Jane, and a warm welcome to you Sandra!

Gotherington Singers Spring Concert

Lovely concert yesterday evening at Balcarras school, with Vicki Beauregard and the wonderful Beauregard Youth Choir. They are such a talented group of young people, and it was a delight to hear them. We were thrilled that they agreed to join us, the audience loved their programme, and we wish them well in all their future endeavours. We were also delighted to welcome harpist Mark Harmer, who captivated us all with his lovely sensitive playing. The concert was in support of CLIC Sargent, the cancer charity for children and young people.


Gotherington Singers Christmas Concert

Wednesday, 20 December 2017 - 7:30pm - 10:00pm

Our Christmas Concert this year, "A Festive Noel", was one of our best concerts ever! We love singing in the beautiful St Nicolas'Church, and the concert was a sell out, with the audience loving the varied mix of carols, songs and instrumental performers. There was a wonderful 'feel good' atmosphere! Many thanks to the Gloucester Academy of Music Senior Strings, who delighted us with a brilliant and varied programme, and to our own Sarah Gray, who gave us some wonderful flute solos, and also accompanied one of the choir songs.
