Members of the Senior Chamber Choir have already had an amazing start to their 2011 concert season. The first concert of 2011 was to celebrate the opening of the newly refurbished Town Hall where the choir shared the platform with the Town Band, LADS, the Launceston Male Voice Choir together with two professional singers: Darren Jeffery and Shelley Coulter-Smith.
More recently, the choir entertained a well and truly packed Victory Hall at Lewdown. The audience there was treated to a musical feast from the choir and orchestra, as well as some wonderful solo performances from Bethany Hulme-Teague, Naomi Gillies, Lily Robinson, Amy Marks and Penny Tilsley.
Canzonetta was privileged to be invited to sing at the opening of the Town Hall by HRH the Duchess of Cornwall and the girls were really excited when her HRH came up onto the stage and chatted with them about their experiences at the School Prom in the Royal Albert Hall last November.
The Chamber Choir took part in a concert last week with the Triggshire Wind Orchestra, raising funds once more for Macmillan Cancer Support. This is the second time both groups have worked together for this charity. The audience was clearly delighted with the amount of talent on display by both groups and planning is already in hand for their next joint venture.
As always, very many thanks to all those parents and staff who have come and supported the choir at their various concerts. Thank you too, to all those who have helped by transporting car-loads of children to and from concerts – and have either fed them between school and the event or have invited them to stay over night. We wouldn’t be able to put on these concerts for charity without your help and support.
