LADYBRIDGE SINGERS SEASON 2016/17 REPORT.
Ladybridge Singers successfully completed their 2016/17 season after giving several memorable performances.
In particular, on 1st April, they participated in Bolton Choir Festival at the Victoria Hall. The choir acquitted itself very well indeed in front of other Choirs and a nationally-recognised professional choral expert. For the first time the choir sang unaccompanied and demonstrated the great advances in technique that the choir has acheived. Positive feedback was received from all sides and it was a wonderful experience for all the choir.
The 10th June saw the choir taking part in an Evening of Song and Dance at the Victoria Hall, together with The Brixie Singers and Dawn Dawson's Dance Academy. The programmes of all, married well together, with a wide variety of music being covered and the young dancers performing splendid energetic dance routines. A very enjoyable evening.
The 24th June was this seasons Gala Concert at Horwich Parish Church ( our fourth appearance ). It was again supportrd by the Mayors and Mayoresses of Bolton and Horwich, and the MP for Bolton West Chris Green. This concert has proved very popular over the last few years ,with good attendance raising money for charity. This year £1916 was raised for Marie Curie and the North West Ambulance. A representative from Marie Curie who attended the event said it was one of the best events she had attended. She thoroughly enjoyed it.
A special mention goes to Matthew Chadbond, a young violinist who has performed at this concert and others with the choir. He is a wonderful musician who is a joy to listen to, and his contribution adds another dimension to the evening.
So don't miss next years Gala Concert on Saturday the 23rd June 2018.
