Winter Concert at Elmers End

A Sunday afternoon concert at Elmers End - 3rd February

A warm welcome awaited the Junior Choir for a relaxed, informal programme of music at the United Reformed Church at Elmers End. A big "thank you" to Eunice and to Revd. Bill Bowman, the Minister, who gave their time to support us and to make the Church available.


Lots of solos and songs for the whole Choir, mostly of a "fun" nature.  Titles included "There was I, waiting at the church", "Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner",
"When the red, red robin", "Island in the sun".....but also Psalm 23 to plainsong, so a wide variety of styles.

It was good to see not only George and Elizabeth Godsmark, who play regularly for the Choir (and are only with us until the summer, when they leave school, now being eighteen!) but also their sister Laura, who played a couple of piano solos.  This is the Church which they attend weekly, so they were really our hosts! We now boast three younger pianists too, Niamh, Megan and Anna, who all took part alongside Mark on guitar.  Amy also played guitar with mark in one song.

Thanks to many parents and friends for their part behind the scenes. Especial thanks to Ben and Ivan on the sound system.  We still need volunteers to help us in this department.....please come forward if you can assist.

Anyway, a really good afternoon!  Congratulations to all the musicians!
