Anniversary Choir Concert

July 24th 2019 at 2.30pm in Hersham Baptist Church

Members of the Choir were asked to nominate their all-time favourites from their extensive repertoire, and the result is an eclectic mix of music and song, which should have something for everyone. From the Ancient Britons – think Woad - through 16th Century Madrigals, Italian Opera and romantic ballads, the concert will culminate in a rousing sing-along to favourites from ‘My Fair Lady’ - one of the Choir’s signature pieces.

There will be a party atmosphere throughout, and the post-concert refreshments will include a slice of celebration cake. There is no charge, though contributions to a local charity would be welcome. The choir would be delighted if you would join them for a melodious and fun-filled afternoon as we celebrate this important milestone in the life of our U3A.
