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!

Choir double success at Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts

Saturday, 14 May 2011

Saturday 14th May 2011 was Choral Day of the Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts. The choir had a very successful day, winning two classes. In the beautiful setting of Cheltenham Town Hall we won both the Sacred Songs and the Ladies' Choirs Classes. The whole day was a wonderful celebration of choral music, and the standard of singing from all the participating choirs was incredibly high. Win or lose, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Choral music has such a wonderful way of bringing people together.
