So we are delighted to introduce to you, Mr & Mrs Thorn
The wedding was perfect, the love and happiness was so strong in the room that you could feel it. Jo looked stunning and Steve wore a permanent grin along with the dapper suit!
They were surrounded by special people who were all overjoyed to share the celebrations with them.
The traditional ‘first dance’ of a wedding was actually replaced with a lovely jazz duo of ‘Night and Day’ of Ella Fitzgerald fame which had the bride and groom gazing into each others eyes while they sang to each other for our entertainment. The 3 tier wedding cake was covered in musical score and notes…… and was delicious.
It would not of been complete had the chorus not had a song or two which Jo really enjoyed; “I cant believe I’ve directed in my dress!” was said at the end of “Can’t take my eyes off of you” and “Happy Together” – two very apt songs for the day of course.
We wish them every happiness for the future.
One Thursday evening in August we were able to secure a session from a new coach – Doug Harrington!
He helped us with our convention songs and we really enjoyed this first coaching session with him. It is surprising how, as women, we reacted to a man!! We obviously have a female MD and we realise that our coaches are usually women too so it really was a refreshing and exciting change for us as a chorus. The evening went at lightening speed of course!
It was a fun and energetic evening and we do hope that we will be able to have Doug come to see us again in the future – thank you Doug
We were delighted to be able to present our charity for 2016 – local RDA group Patchwork – with a cheque for £890 recently to help this very worthwhile, dedicated group who do such a wonderful job with the youngsters.
We had a lovely surprise on 16th March – Planet 24 (The Venus & Mars A Cappella Company) came to showcase the songs that they are competing with at the Bath Music Festival on Saturday 25th March. Made up of members from The Great Western Chorus, Black Sheep and Fascinating Rhythm, this mixed group entertained us with an eclectic mix of songs. We wish them every success – watch this space for the results!
