We received a great review for our November Concert, recognising not only the Choral’s performance but the fine work of our Musical Director, Ed Taylor, to bring us to this point.
Both our accompanists were recognised for their skill and contributions: ‘Margaret Harvie’s delicate, harp-like piano accompaniment rippled along beautifully’ in Faure’s Cantique de Jean Racine and John Kitchen’s accompaniments on the organ were a ‘virtuosic display of support and balance’
‘one of the best concerts the Choral has given in years’

What work and what talent!
A very big thank you to Geoff Davidson, Mike Stenhouse and their very talented page turner for such a fun(d)raiser for us. And to the ‘full house’ who supported them and the Choral.
