At the concert we made a rather special presentation to bass Andy, who has been our very dedicated concert manager for 20 years… he is handing on the responsibility to tenor Laurence. Altos Emily, Emily and Ali have taken over the CD sales role from Andy and soprano Anne as well. We hear tenor Tim is looking for an apprentice biscuit monitor to train up into his rehearsal refreshments role too… we’ll keep you posted on other promotions!

Pre Concert Information
We’re really looking forward to returning to Motcombe, near Shaftesbury for our early Spring concert. We last sang at St Mary’s in January 2022, at the invitation of our friends Andrew and Catherine Johnston, and received the warmest welcome – it was a joy to sing to such a large and generous audience. We are excited to be with you again, Motcombe!
Music will range from the 16th to the 21st century, from Tallis and Handel to Abba and Queen. 
Tickets are £18 each and are available from Motcombe Community Shop or send us a message and we will put you in touch with the local organiser. Interval canapés and wine for donations available.
