Held at St Mary's Church on 13th April, and organised by Sheilagh Armitt for Cancer Research, this 'Get Together' of 45 singers from as far afield as Banbury, proved most enjoyable for the singers at the afternoon rehearsal as it did too for the audience at the evening concert.
With works by Handel, Bach, Haydn and Vaughan Williams, the Conductor, Ian Westley with organist Colin Spinks, did great work bringing the Choir together during the short two hour rehearsal. The Soloists were Sheilagh Armitt and Stephen Hamnett, Senior Lay Clerk at Llandaff Cathedral who sings, not only with other Choirs in that area, but also as a Bass with 'Only Men Aloud'.
Despite such a short rehearsal time for these challenging works, the Concert was warmly received with many compliments by the audience as to the quality of sound attained.
Singers paid to attend and participate, and the day raised a total of £437 for Cancer Research UK
