   The original workplace choir!

If you are patient enough, good things will happen and the pandemic certainly tried the patience of our choristers. On Saturday 11th June we were rewarded with a return to concerts and we were very happy to be invited to sing in Taunton at St. Georges Church. We were greeted by a small but select audience who made us welcome and judging by the remarks made to me by the organiser, Anne, they thoroughly enjoyed it. Anne told me that her favourite of the evening was "The Song of The Jolly Roger".

Our tenors deserve praise for maintaining their presence in the sound mix as their numbers were diminished because of illness.

Sheila Rice was our Music Director and Clair Hiles our accompanist. Both are very accomplished musicians and have done a great deal to bring us back to concert level. They also entertained us with a couple of delightful piano duets, lightly and flawlessly presented. Pete Carlyon and Frank Edgeller sang the solos, Pete encouraging the audience to join in with 2 Flanders and Swan songs with Frank rendering something a little less frivolous.

It is a great feeling to be getting in the mood again. Even Robin Hobbs brought out some of his most cringy jokes during his compere role.

This might be a good time for some of you men out there to join our choir and experience this feeling for yourselves. Contact us and we can arrange a free trial to sing with us at rehearsal.

We are recruiting! Click here to see the video.
