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??
