The Mixed Voice Choir and Men of Chew presented a dazzling performance on May 7th to over one hundred and sixty five people in Midsomer Norton Methodist Church.

Each choir had a strong repertoire of their own and they came together with four songs to round off the evening.

‘Absolutely inspiring’,‘could hear every word’ and ‘lovely, warm atmosphere with a great song selection’ were some of the audience comments.

Following this, on May 21st, the Orchestra performed to a packed hall at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Whitchurch.

The Orchestra now numbers forty one, from a small start of nine musicians, and played a balanced programme with real style, skill and enthusiasm. ‘Thoroughly enjoyable’and ‘I didn’t realise they were so good!’ were some feedback comments.

Both of these concerts were in aid of DEC Ukraine and Focus Bath Counselling. We are very proud to announce that each of the charities will be receiving £1,003 from a total of £2,006 raised. Combined with the fabulous singing and playing, this was a brilliant result for the charities.

Huge thanks and congratulations go to the performers and our wonderful audiences for their generosity.
