Despite torrential rain, and the counter-attractions of the England match on TV we all enjoyed a great night in the beautiful surroundings of St.Mary’s church in Market Drayton last night.
The programme was very varied, including new material, and new soloists and a wonderful piano recital by Anne and Jade.
It only serves to emphasise how important concerts are in establishing confidence and the feeling of being in a unit together,working with the conductor and pianist to create that wonderful sound !!
I think we numbered 24 or 25, which emphasises how urgent our recruitment crisis is. On the one hand the bass section ,which has been struggling of late, is beginning to come together and sound more confident.On the other hand ,if a couple of people can’t make it on a particular night, we will struggle, which is what happened when we had to postpone this concert late last year
So, we go forward together-next concert-Saturday July 2nd St.Lawrence’s Church,Gnosall, then we are into October,- Oct 1st St.Mary Magdalene,Albrighton Oct.,15th St.Bartholomew’s Tong,and then, hopefully the re-arranged concert with The Jackfield Band.
Onwards!!-Anybody out there who may be thinking that it sounds like good fun, don’t think about it, give it a go!!What have you got to lose??
