Christmas Concert

Saturday, 13 December 2014 - 7:30pm - 10:00pm

What a wonderful evening we had at St Andrew's Church for our Christmas concert. The concert was a huge success and the whole evening was full of warmth and love, perfect for the start of Christmas. We thank John Qualtrough, who so ably compered the evening, and of course Margaret Crompton our Musical Director and Rachel Hobby our accompanist, who help and support us all the way. We also thank all our choir members who sang so beautifully and worked together to make the evening so happy and successful. And the icing on the cake was our incomparable young soloist, violinist Hannah Brooks-Hughes. What a talent! What a future!

What a wonderful evening we had at Winchcombe school for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal concert. We shared the platform with Winchcombe Concert Brass, and also Callum and Pete from Winchcombe school who treated us to some great piano playing. It was a wonderful evening of warmth, friendship and remembrance in this special Remembrance year, 100 years from the start of the First World War. We were proud to be involved in an occasion remembering and giving thanks for all those who gave their lives for us in that war and in all wars since.

Gotherington Singers Spring Concert, April 2014

Saturday, 5 April 2014

Our Spring concert was in St Peter's Church, Leckhampton. The audience enjoyed a varied programme of songs and instrumental items, and our compere, John Qualtrough, gave us a very funny version of "There's a hole in my bucket" together with his wife Una. As it is 100 years since the start of WW1 the concert included "Everyone Suddenly Burst out Singing", a poem by Siegfried Sassoon set to music by Peter Willsher, and "Roses of Picardy"by John Qualtrough and Vivien Nicholson.
