First Concert of 2016

Well, we just started our year with a concert at Tri-Care Stafford.  We had a hot stuffy day with all the over-cast conditions, but it all went without a major hitch.  Ian (MC) mis-read the programme, and that set the scene for a light hearted run through of some lovely songs,  ranging from Irving Berlin, Marvin Hamlisch to Cole Porter and everything in between.

Ably supported by a few star turns: a first from John S (well done!), Barbara and Sharon, and Denis combined with a barbershop quartet (alright – maybe quintet of Frederick, Bill, Denis, John and Ian!).

Add into the mix a little participation from the audience (and it was great to see them singing along with the choir too) and we whiled away an afternoon.

Thanks to Margaret and Brandon for leading us though the programme!
