Undeterred by the disappointment of their cancelled concert last week – ( it was all Brian’s fault! ) the Ladies sallied forth on a cold Sunday evening to entertain the good folk of Edgecumbe Chapel. The weather may have been chilly but the atmosphere was warm as the Choir sang their hearts out to an appreciative audience.
Our wonderful accompanist, Rico, played a splendid solo piece as well as leaping up and down to the organ loft to play for the community hymns.
Sylvia entertained us with a couple of humorous poems and the Edgecumbe concert organisers provided some very delicious refreshments. All in all a fine evening’s entertainment. WELL DONE LADIES.
And since we are approaching the end of our 50th birthday celebrations here is a lovely study of what Stithians Ladies Choir represents ….
Sisters Marlene and Angeline ( wearing the special badges of honour ) along with several other founder members, have been in the choir since the beginning. That’s 50 years of dedication, commitment and loyalty, binding friendships and that unique feeling that comes with sharing wonderful music and a joint sense of purpose and belonging. With Ladies like these the choir continues to go from strength to strength – and don’t they look good on it?
HERE’S TO THE NEXT 50 YEARS!
