Past events: Prague Visit 6th 10th June 2012

We were very pleased to have joined the Smetana-Slovanka Male Voice Choir Kladno near Prague  for their 100-year celebration.

The choir arrived in Prague on the Wednesday, to be greeted by a short musical welcome from the Male Voice Choir. We were treated to a tour of Kladno, their local town, during the day, and back to the hotel to prepare for the evening. We then went to meet the Prague Lady Teachers choir for a concert in the beautiful Sand Gate in Prague.

Following a day’s sightseeing in Prague, the final day culminated in a concert in Kladno with both the Male Voice and the Ladies choirs. The concert came to a rousing finale where all choirs sang together on “World in Union” to the tune “Thaxted” – an excerpt from Holst’s Jupiter. This was so well received that it was repeated as an encore! The evening was brought to a close with a celebratory party and barbecue with more singing and laughter.

Sunday was a more sober occasion. We were fortunate to be in the Kladno area for this day, the 70th anniversary of the destruction of the village of Lidice on 10th June 1942, in reprisal for the assassination of Hitler’s commander in this area by Czech fighters trained in England and parachuted in.

Past Events: Wed 16th May The “Czech out” concert at Eaton Hall, with Jane Johnson

 Wed 16th May                            “Czech out”  concert at Eaton Hall

 The choir enjoyed another splendid evening in concert in the wonderful surroundings at Eaton Hall singing to a capacity audience.  The concert, aptly titled “Czech Out”, was an opportunity for us to sing all the pieces we have rehearsed in readiness for our trip toPrague in June and they were all received well by a most appreciative audience.

We were supported by our long time friend, Jane Johnson, and she was in splendid voice as usual and looked stunning in two of her “posh frocks”.  Everyone enjoyed snacks and Cava before the entertainment, which was prepared by Irene and her helpers.
