ORIEL BENNETT & SUE WHITMORE
These intrepid travellers are our narrators for our forthcoming event.
Oriel (right), a dance and fitness instructor, has been an actor, director and producer in many theatrical productions and is known throughout the County for her dynamic approach to dance, drama, music and comedy.
Sue (left), a musician who loves singing and choral music has also featured in many productions, specialising in forthright old ladies who play the piano.
They have been friends for many years and enjoy travelling to far- flung places and taking on new challenges. Their latest challenge has been to devise a script about various women who have founded charities, for that is the theme of our International Women’s Day celebration this year. They will tell us about such inspiring women as Morella Kayman, (Alzheimer’s Society) Octavia Hill, (National Trust) and Judy Fryd, (Mencap) culminating in the story of our very own Mary Berryman, the founder of the Flicka Foundation animal sanctuary in Mabe.
Why not join Oriel, Sue, some incredible musicians and a host of like-minded women at our celebration for International Women’s Day?
SUNDAY 8th MARCH 7.30 at FALMOUTH METHODIST CHURCH
SEE YOU THERE!
This is the second of our articles featuring our guests at our forthcoming International Women’s Day Celebration
MABE LADIES CHOIR
Mabe Ladies Choir has been a feature in the Cornish musical Landscape since 1931 and has long been hailed as one of Cornwall’s premier choral groups, having on many an occasion won trophies and accolades in competitions both in Cornwall and farther afield. They nurture strong bonds with choirs locally and from as far away as Wales and Sweden.
Their catchment for members spreads from Truro to Coverack, with ages ranging from thirty-something to eighty-something. Once a week they meet in Penryn to enjoy and nurture their common love of singing. The choir take their singing very seriously, always striving to achieve the highest possible standards, with repertoire which spans a wide variety of genres.
However it is the Community of Mabe Ladies Choir which is the bond that truly sings through them and which fills audiences with a warm glow. That said, they do love a good chat, and much fun is had whilst engaging in the serious matter of singing!
