The concert opened with Siyahamba, a traditional South African piece that showed the intricate harmonies of the choir.
There followed many traditional songs each delivered with enthusiasm and skill
Part singing has come on enormously since the last concert and the choir clearly enjoy demonstrating their skills developed under their direction of Laura Morgan.
When it came to Laura’s turn to sing some well known and not so well known pieces by Gershwin, accompanied by Karen Smith, we were treated to real class!
Then we all sang ‘good luck to the barley mow’ a tongue twisting marathon with audience participation.
The short concert was rounded off with some more well known tunes from Abba and Johnny Nash among others.
The evening was a treat of light music and communal singing that only a choir rooted in its community can deliver. Great fun!
