At Easter it was good to be back at the Bridgewater Hall with

Karl Jenkins in Concert

Where Sir Karl Jenkins conducted us and the Mancheste rConcert Orchestra in a superb selection of his most popular works, including The Armed Man : A Mass For Peace, with sublime excerpts from Symphonic Adiemus  and Palladio.

 

 

Our previous concert was at St Bernadette's Church, Whitefield,

singing an eclectic mix of songs in styles from around the world.

£500 raised for the Social Centre Renovation Fund!

Bridgewater Hall

 

 
Here we are, sparkling, festive, and ready to go for the second half of the Christmas Singalong at The Bridgewater Hall. A wonderful evening, with a superb audience and the enthusiasm of Jonathan Cohen at the helm. A great end to a year when we got back singing again. Here’s to much more singing in the New Year!

Our last Concert

 

We had a lovely time singing for a large audience! Here are some pictures.

 

Just before the summer break we squeezed in an outdoor rehearsal, and had enormous fun:

During the first lockdown we recorded a 'Virtual Choir' video of Will Todd's "Like a Rainbow Shining", and in our final three rehearsals before Christmas we set ourselves the challenge of singing all 100 in the much loved book, "100 Carols for Choirs" - a mammoth task - with sponsorship and donations going to the Manchester Barnabus Appeal. By the end of the final rehearsal a whopping £849 had been raised! 

Here we are in our Christmas bling, singing the carols:

 
 

Some of our themed Zoom rehearsals during Lockdown - can you guess the themes??
