Morning Concert in Central Reading

Sat, 25 Sep 2021
It was a special day for the choir when for the first time since March 2019, we were able to perform a concert in public!

The format of the concert was a bit different from normal in that it was held in the morning and we sang in our red choir polo shirts rather than formal dress.. It was a deliberately informal concert to get us back in to the swing of performing to an audience.

It was also the first time we sang together 'in close formation' instead of socially distanced and it was a fantastic feeling. As our audience comprised quite a few families and children, Chris told lively stories about the pieces to make them more engaging for young ears.

The powers that be at the Abbey Baptist Church in Reading provided us this message about the concert
"It was an enjoyable event and the conductor was so good with engaging with the children"
