We had a very full Jubilee Hall for our Concert on Saturday 8th December and wow did we entertain the audience! The compliments came thick and fast from all sides. Obviously Ash wasn't waving his arms around needlessly!! He does wave his arms with huge enthusiasm. His energy and ebullience transfers to the quoir and inspires us to give of our best.
Two new talents were discovered in Gill and Dawn as they both delivered their solo pieces with confidence. Gill's funny "Politically Correct Christmas " raised smiles all around and Dawn's "Silent Night " narrative was a moving tribute to the fallen of the "Great War ."
Our lovely quartet of ladies, Vera, Sandra, Margaret and Penny sang their two pieces with their usual sensitivity and musicality.
Sandra gave a most accomplished clarinet solo on a two carol theme and Ash played his violin with great jazzy panache. When our guest guitarist Ashley stood to play his solo, we were all surprised when he sang too! and it was great.
We are truly blessed with our two pianists Janet and Maureen. They competently tackle everything put on the music stand on the piano. ( Don't you wish you'd practiced when you were told.)
We had a wonderful audience who applauded vigorously and joined in with the community carol singing with great enthusiasm......and no small talent!! They had been entertained with a truly diverse concert which showed on their smiling faces as they left the Jubilee Hall.
Happy Christmas to all,
