Past Event: Tues 30th Sept 14 Concert at Eaton Hall, Chester, with Alex Flanders, trumpet soloist

 

The choir enjoyed another splendid evening in concert in the wonderful surroundings at Eaton Hall, Chester,  singing to a capacity audience.  The concert had an assortment of music to suit all tastes, from a medley of the songs from Oliver, through the modern Adiemus by Karl Jenkins, to the old spiritual, Down to the River to Pray (popularised in the Cohen Brothers film,  “Oh Brother where art thou”).

We were very privileged to also be able to present Alex Flanders, a very talented young trumpeter from Northwich, Cheshire, who added thrilling variety to the evening with his repertoire of popular and more esoteric pieces, ably supported on the piano by our brilliant accompanist, Margaret Corlett.

Irene Wilkinson and an army of helpers laid on a superb range of deserts and drinks to really top the evening off, and we raised £1,000 for Clatterbridge, the renowned cancer hospital near Chester.

  • What a fantastic evening – Chester’s best!

  • The experience began at the magnificent entrance, followed by the drive through the parkland. We were then met in the handsome courtyard, conducted through to the Reception where drinks were awaiting, together with a sumptuous buffet, all in the elegant setting of the Long Room.

    After a pleasant chat with friends we were ushered into the concert hall, which was beautifully set out in rich blue seating.
    The choir and its performance were first class, in addition to which there was a young and talented trumpeter. At the end, they very much enjoyed being invited to join in singing the songs from WW!, with at times hardly a dry eye in the house.

    In the interval both choir and guests were served a choice of delicious puddings with sparkling wine.
    What more could one ask.
    We loved it” “Thank You”.
