Well sung all the intrepid WCS members who turned out for carol singing! I wonder... did Sainsburys actually notice we were there? No idea - didn't see any of their representatives.... Thanks though to the many lovely people putting coins in the Weston Hospicecare boxes which we eventually found via a pleasant security guard....
Many thanks to those members who turned up for the Carol Singing at Sainsbury’s on Tuesday 17th December. It was a blast! Special mention to the men who gave a stirring rendition of the verse in Good King Wenceslas! The interpretation of the "wind" deserves another thumbs up!
It will be interesting to know how much we raised for Weston Hospice Care.
When we know, we will let you know.
Bill and Kay.
Just to let you know that the premiere performance of Bob Chilcott's Christmas Oratorio (which Weston Choral will be singing for our Christmas 2020 concert), was recorded live by BBC Radio 3 and will be broadcast on Thursday 19 December at 7.30 pm.
Please do have a listen to Ellie’s version of Les fleurs et les abres. I was asked, "Is this good enough for homework this week?" Accolade for the best reply please...
Singing feeds the soul, enriches the mind and adds immensely to the enjoyment of life - great thing to do for health, happiness and well-being. Please join us!
We perform with professional orchestras and soloists of the highest calibre. We love singing and constantly strive to raise our performance.
We regularly perform in All Saints which has an amazing accoustic and we take part in concerts in stunning venues elsewhere - most recently some of our singers sang with Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) at David Geffen Hall Lincoln Centre, New York.
Our fantastic conductor, Howard Sayer, brings inspirational leadership and a wealth of experience, not to mention a lot of fun to our singing!
We sing a wide variety of music, with emphasis on newer works by living composers. We also hold singing days where we meet other singers and invite distinguished conductors.
We have fun! We make friends, and some of us go to the pub after rehearsals each week. We organise social events, singing days, quiz nights and anything else that members might like to arrange...
