RECIPE FOR SUCCESS

1. Take two choirs, a trumpet and a noble church organ.                                      2. Add a dash of thoughtfully delivered narration.                                           3. A large helping of enthusiastic, appreciative audience.                               4. A generous portion of sublime music                                                               and you get …. lots of happy people and £1000!

Stithians Ladies Choir and Barnstaple Ladies Choir join together to sing Rutter’s “The Lord Bless You and Keep You “ as a finale to the concert.

Stithians Ladies Choir held a fund raising concert in aid of the Falmouth Methodist Church Regeneration project and they invited Barnstaple Ladies Choir, trumpeter Louie Draycott and organist Rico Gerber to join them. The result was a fabulous feast of music from madrigals to musicals, Elgar to Ellington and everything in between. The performers were from all walks of life and ranged in age from some life-long choir members in their 80s to young, local  brass player Louie Draycott and they were all brought together by the power of music and the desire to help. Money was raised by ticket sales, a grand raffle, collections and donations and later this week the Choir will present a cheque for £1000 to Falmouth Methodist Church.
