We were scheduled to have two concerts, on at Witton Gilbert on the 12 December and one on 19th December at our "home" - Chester-le-Street Methodist Church.
Sadly because of seasonal, but very heavy, SNOW we had to cancel the outing to Witton Gilbert and so offered those who had bought tickets the chance to use them at our main concert on the 19th. We were pleased that some of the audience managed to take advantage of that offer and we would like to thank them for their support and understanding.
The concert at Chester-le-Street was a lovely event and we had a large and appreciative audience - despite competing with the "Strictly Come Dancing Final"!
The choir performed a mix of accompanied and unaccompanied pieces. The main support was given by our talented pianist (Janet Trewick) with some pieces having additional colour added by musical friends of the choir playing bass guitar, flute and piccollo, cello and percussion. A number of audience members commented on how this variety had enhanced their enjoyment.
The evening was rounded off with post-concert refreshments including the traditional mince pies and chocolate logs.
