We received a warm welcome when we performed at Ebenezer Church Begelly on Friday 28th October. Our varied programme which delighted the audience was in aid of church funds one of the many charity concerts that we have performed this year. We were joined for two of the livelier pieces Siyahamba & African Alleluia, by Phillip Davies of Sir Thomas Picton School whose bongo playing kept the tempo going and the audience’s toes taping. Another young talent Fred Stace–Smith of Tenby Greenhill School delighted the audience with his accomplished trumpet playing; Fred was accompanied by his mother Sharon Stace-Smith on the piano. Individual talents also shone through, with Carol Mayhew, Emma Halls and Frances Oates leading the us into ‘Bright Morning Stars’ Frances again lead the way into ‘This is the day’ whilst Rose Goodall took the lead into ‘Hallelujah Get Happy’ and one of our new members Katheryn Page took the solo part of ‘How can I keep from Singing’. Unusually our Musical Director Nancy Mann took to the stage in song with fellow member Frances with their rendition of ‘Duet for two cats’ which brought a smile to lots of faces, they were accompanied on the piano by Janice Goodwin. Our accompanist Gerry Nicholas accompanied us for the rest of the concert.
The concert at Ebenezer was the last one before the we start practicing for our Christmas performance, this year the concert on 9th December at St. Mary’s Church Haverfordwest will not only be a celebration of Christmas but also a celebration of twenty five years of making music together. The concert as always promises to be full of festive cheer with plenty of audience participation and time to enjoy mince pies and mulled wine afterwards.
Anyone interested in joining us is welcome to come along to the Catholic Church Hall Due Street Haverfordwest on Thursday evening at 7.30pm for further information please contact our secretary Janice Goodwin on 01834 860953.
