Englesea Brook Concert


On an unusually hot traditional English June Summer afternoon and evening the quire performed at Englesea Brook Chapel to a good sized audience.

|Cream Teas were served on the lawn before the concert and cupa teas after, wonderful, just what the quire likes.

Thanks to the good people at Englesea.

There was a lack of tenors, we normally have five, BUT Richard the sole male tenor supported by Lyn was in good voice and they excelled themselves for which the quire members were very grateful. Bryan the quire master supported them where he was able, Bryan is a bass singer when not conducting.

Success

Success! The day turned out well, no snow, so an enjoyable afternoon was spent celebrating  Isabella's birthday and years given to West Gallery Music. So it was a month later than planned but still a success.

The rehearsal was well attended and the quire was joined by former quire members and members of Shropshire Harmony, who added some great bassoon playing and also boosted the alto section.

Refreshments also went down well, no surprise there.





More pictures of the quire members.

Merry Singing


Good singing, excellent company and lots of tasty food. Obviously a quire of good cooks as well as musicians.

This rehearsal was certainly a good way to end the year and thanks to Bryan and Edna for turning over their home for this rehearsal. Sadly a few members were unable to make it, they were missed and in our thoughts.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
