Central Library Winter Extravaganza 15th Dec 2018
After Friday’s unveiling of the Emmeline Pankhurst statue at which our choir sang three songs to a huge audience the question arose: would performing at the Winter Extravangza at the Central Library be an anti-climax? Well, we needn’t have worried! Our audience was well pleased with our performance, as were we.
It might seem strange to have our choir and other groups performing in the library but curiously the acoustics work and libraries after all are community resources open to all. So why not break the silence at this festive time?
Liz our indefatigable choir director had chosen a set of songs that represented some of our best work. We started with three festive ones – the medieval madrigal Dindirin, the fun reindeer song Oley Ley Loyla, Past Three A’Clock; followed by the stunning three songs we had performed at the Pankhurst statue unveiling – Nana Was A Suffragette, Pankhurst Anthem, You’re The Voice and finally three that celebrated the New Year -. Ring It In, Tar Barrel in Dale, and finally our barbershop version of Auld Lang Syne.
Best wishes for the festive season and thanks to all who work behind the scenes to make our choir such a good group to be in and listen to!
