Thanks to everyone who came to hear Close Harmony and Millstone Grit sing at the beautiful,newly restored,WARM St Mary Magdalene Church in Waltham.
Members of CH thoroughly enjoyed singing and there were many kind comments from the audience - great to see so many global Harmony friends there to support us
The men of Millstone Grit gave us an energetic and varied set
and it was great to join together for the finale.
A big Thank You to the church community who made us so welcome and fed us so well.
Thanks also to Liz , our musical director and Jan who conducts Millstone Grit.
See below a review from Carole Clohesy, a former member of Global Harmony. Thanks, Carole!
"Still savouring the beautiful sounds I enjoyed at Close Harmony's concert on Saturday evening. Wow, it was a tour de force! Really great range of moods and such precision which meant that after sensing the nerves at first, I realized at least I could relax because they really had nailed it! The choir did relax after all and made it such an enjoyable, stimulating experience that I will definitely be a follower in future ! It was wonderful, too, to be with good friends and to feel so at home. Waltham on the Wolds has a lovely, welcoming church and the male voice choir ( directed by another very talented woman!) gave us an entertaining 2nd half too. Millstone Grit has a lovely folk sound which I really like and again, such a varied programme which took us on a great journey."
STOP PRESS! the concert raised a fabulous £372.33 for The Storehouse Food Bank and the same amount went into the Church's Stage 2 work fund.
