Morgan Motor Company Centenary

Cheltenham Racecourse

Gotherington Singers were honoured to be asked to sing at the Morgan Motor Company Centenary celebrations at Cheltenham Racecourse. Luckily the sun shone all day, and we all had a most enjoyable time.

We rehearsed in the morning, where we had time to get used to the stage and all the microphones and cables, and opened the evening concert with a selection from our lighter repertoire including a concert version of Les Miserables, where we were joined by baritone John Qualtrough.

Our performance was much appreciated by the large audience who were picnicking on the grass and enjoying the warm evening sunshine. After we had finished singing we joined the audience to listen to the English Symphony Orchestra and beautiful soprano Natasha Marsh who were absolutely fantastic.

The evening ended with a magnificent firework display. We were delighted to have been part of the whole wonderful occasion.
