It is good to get back to singing again after the covid pandemic and we are working hard on a selection of our favourite songs for this year’s concerts in June and October.
Christmas concerts have always been great fun. Last Christmas, for the fourth time, we took a coach up to Newport, where we joined the Newport Male Voices for their Christmas Concert in the beautiful St Nicholas’ Church. A really enjoyable event, where we take it in turns to sing and then enjoy home-made Christmas cake and wine in the interval.
We also hold our own concert in Codsall – ‘Carols by Candlelight’, at the beginning of December, with mulled wine and mince pies in the interval. At this concert we raise money for Compton Hospice and Midlands Air Ambulance.
We also hold a ‘Strawberries and Champagne’ concert every June, accompanied by Darryll Prew, our talented pianist and folk singer. Our young soloist, Holly Beason, always enchants our audiences, too, with her beautiful singing.
It’s good to see that most of our singers have come back after the pandemic and that, once again, we have a thriving choir.
