The original workplace choir!

On Saturday 9th November we made a very wet trip down to Minehead to sing a concert at St Andrews Church. The audience was receptive and welcoming on this return visit after our previous concert there two years ago. The autumn has taken its toll of choir members, bringing colds and sore throats but the slightly depleted choir really gave of its best.

Alison Howell and Sheila Rice shared the tasks of M.D. and accompanist for the evening and also gave us a couple of very clever piano duets during the breaks. Pete Carlyon encouraged the audience to join in the muddy chorus of "The Hippopotamus Song" and he completed his solos with "Send In The Clowns". In the second half, John Helyer gave us a lovely version of "Perhaps Love" and finished with "The Elephant Song". We are obviously fans of Flanders and Swan.

Robin Hobbs was our compere for the evening. Normally, he includes some jokes during his presentation but he was rather kind to us last night and let us off. He always gets the task just right, with a lovely balance between enough information to make it interesting but not too much to make it boring. Well done Robin!

Our next concert is in Bath, in company with Combe Down Primary School and their children will be providing the songs in the breaks between the choir sets. That is likely to be a wonderful occasion. See you there?
