The Tunes at Tweedmill Shopping Outlet was a different afternoon for the choir. A deviation from our usual concert. Furthermore, thrilled with the warm reception and hearty applause.
Additionally, thanks to those who stayed from beginning to end. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the entertainment.
Praise for Tunes at Tweedmill
We had visitors from Australia. The Tunes at Tweedmill would also be the perfect Welsh finale to their vacation with relatives. “Nice memory to take back to Australia”.
Not to mention others thought that the singing came from a store CD. What a heartening commendation!
Strategically placed on the stairwell we were in a position to see the surprised look on the faces of customers as they entered the Shopping Outlet.
The surprise changed to an appreciative smile as they responded to our singing.
Music Director Arwyn Roberts and accompanist Nia Jones deserve special mention!
Arwyn made a good impression of the outmoded Tic-Tac bookmaker operator as he tried to sign language our next song. It was like a game of Charades, and most entertaining.
He also kept a tight control, and demanded that we gave of our best.
Arwyn, as always, had decided on a balanced programme, full of variety and representative of our concert repertoire.
Spread out over a marathon five separate sessions.
Nia Jones’ boundless energy and radiant smile is appreciated. Not to mention her attentive and faultless accompaniment.
It was not easy for her, or Arwyn, with the constant distraction of customers entering and leaving the store.
Donations for Tunes at Tweedmill
Customers readily parted with their voluntary donations to support the work of the popular choir. We too appreciate their generosity for all contributions.
We also received compliments throughout the afternoon.
Glain Wynne Jones described being “thoroughly entertained whilst having our coffee this afternoon.”
Also, an experienced chorister from a nearby Welsh choir said that he had not heard better at the Royal Albert Hall.
Praise indeed, and he was stone cold sober!
Edit: Thanks to Tweedmill Shopping Outlet for facilitating this venture.
