Christmas Concert 

18th December 2021

It was with great joy and relief that we performed our Christmas concert planned for 18th December. It was the first time in 2 years that we had performed in public, due to Covid restrictions, and we were all crossing our fingers as to whether we would be allowed to sing. 

After Rev. Nigel Tuffnell and Stella, our Chair had welcomed everyone to the concert we very nervously stood to start singing. However, with Karen, our Director smiling at us from the keyboard we soon started to enjoy the atmosphere and experience of singing again to a very appreciative audience.

The Chamber Ensemble were marvellously supportive and Laura, our soloist sang exquisitely. One could have heard a pin drop when she was singing and the accoustics helped everyone to give of their best.
