Three years of song

WHH_4690-2We have enjoyed three years of singing together and during that time have gone from strength to strength. Our summer concert celebration this year had a moon theme to the programme and we were delighted to welcome Huntington Primary School Choir to take part in our evening of music and poetry.

Singing for Santa

In the forest with SantasWe had a great time this morning singing in Delamere Forest for over 300 Santas.
Elaine, one of our choir members, writes:

Thank you to the dozen or so stalwarts who turned up to the Delamere Santa Dash this morning. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many Santas in one place. It may have been raining, but there was plenty of Christmas spirit (some of it in the form of mulled wine) and loads of enthusiasm! Ably led by Will, we sang an impressive number of songs and carols in 2 sets, and enjoyed a coffee together in the cafe. (If you haven’t been yet, I can recommend it …the cakes and coffee were wonderful). Happy Christmas and see you on 5th Jan!

Which sums it up quite nicely really. The enforced a cappella worked out well when the generator refused to power our piano. Thanks to our pianist, Jeremy, for stepping in and doubling the bass section!
