Pagliacci, Plants and Parties

Throughout the year the choir balance their choral commitments – this season including no fewer than six concerts with orchestras and visits to sing at Coventry and St Paul’s Cathedrals – with a healthy social calendar. A regular feature of the summer season is our plant stall, which helps not only our members’ gardens, but also the choir’s coffers! A summer garden party, complete with morris dancers is a regular feature, and recently we held an Italian social evening with Italian wines and cuisines provided by a crack team of hard-working catering experts in the choir. The entertainment not only included Pagliacci (don’t even ask about the badminton rackets!) but also singing – community singing of Italian light-music classics, as well as solos from willing volunteers in the choir, including our very own Romanian operatic star, whose performances left room only for the cries of ENCORE … ENCORE!
