Avon and Somerset Constabulary Male Voice Choir came to north Wales. Because of our joint concert at St John’s Church, Llandudno. Furthermore, this was an excellent reason to get the cameras and video recorders out. Here are some of the results of the Joint Choirs Videos.
Joint Choirs Videos Welcome Reception
The visiting choir’s first stop was at Denbigh. A welcome reception prepared at the Conservative Club. The Mayor, Raymond Bartley extended a formal welcome. Raymond is also the choir Vice President.
Some energetic visitors opted for a guided walking tour of historical Denbigh. Others tucked in to the lavish buffet kindly donated and prepared by friends of the choir.
Joint Choirs Concert Videos
And so to the especially relevant concert. The joint choirs had but an hour to rehearse the songs chosen for the joint finale.
Hence, it was another classic example of putting one’s trust completely in the musical conductors.
For the concert finale the joint choir conductors agreed to sing ‘Morte Criste’ and ‘Gwahoddiad.’
While ‘African Prayer’ is the standby if we were fortunate to have an encore.
First up is ‘Morte Criste,’ Maryisa Gorke conducting and the organist is Alison Howell.
All change for ‘Gwahoddiad’ with Arwyn Roberts conducting the bi-lingual version. Piano accompaniment by Joyce Davies.
As a consequence, the audience’s applause warranted the encore. Arwyn Roberts conducted ‘The African Prayer,’ with Alison Howell on the organ.
In conclusion, it was such an enjoyable weekend. These joint choirs videos and photographs will provide lasting memories of choral camaraderie.
Thanks to all who made it possible.
