Avon and Somerset Constabulary Male Voice Choir  Police Choir Avon and Somerset Constabulary Male Voice Choir

17 October 2017

The original workplace choir!

On Saturday 14th October, the choir was host to the Marazion Apollo Male Voice Choir who travelled up from Cornwall that day to sing with us at the Taunton Baptist Church. The event became memorable at many levels.

The Cornish men were a great bunch of people, friendly singers with a rich sound and a lovely repertoire who complemented our own choristers perfectly.

The church itself was welcoming and accommodating to our needs offering plenty of space and facilities and it has a good accoustic for our singing.

We used the concert to raise money for a very worthy cause. 4 year old Freddy is in need of an operation that can only be carried out in the U.S.A. and it is expensive - not only for the procedure itself but the aftercare, travel, the stay and other expenses. Freddy's dad is a serving police officer with Avon and Somerset and so we were keen to help raise funds. Freddy and many of his family were at the concert and the sight of this lovely young lad encouraged many members of the audience to add to a collection on leaving.

There was also the chance to enhance the friendships of the two choirs with an after concert drink at the Somerset Cricket Club where both choirs sang through their 'extended' repertoire of songs, some slightly unsuitable for concerts.

A great time was had by all and we are greatful to the planning and preparation carried out by our own Paul Budd. He and his family worked tirelessly to ensure that the event took place and that it was such a success.

Come and join us!!!
