Gotherington Singers Leipzig Tour, concert Bad Schmiederberg

Choir Tour to Leipzig

Thursday, 4 August 2011 - Wednesday, 10 August 2011

The choir, together with partners and friends, returned yesterday from a wonderfully successful and happy tour to Leipzig. We sang to enthusiastic and appreciative audiences in the Festsaal in Bad Schmiederberg, near Leipzig, and the Loschwitz Kirche in Dresden, and were inspired by the musical heritage and tradition of both cities. Everywhere we were greeted with such friendliness, and we were all moved by the warmth of our welcome.

Joint Concert Supporting The Gloucestershire Police Male Voice Choir

Friday, 24 June 2011

Despite a rainy evening the Bingham Hall at Cirencester was full for our concert with the Gloucestershire Police Male Voice Choir. We were very pleased to have been invited to share the evening with them as their guests. The Bingham Hall was a great venue, and both choirs thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening. So, too, did the audience, who were very appreciative.  Particularly enjoyable was the finale, when both choirs came together for a rousing rendition of 'The Rhythm of Life', conducted by George Taylor and accompanied by both accompanists!
