End of Season Report

Ladybridge singers completed ther 2017/2018 season after giving several memorable performances.  Fifteen concerts in total.

On the 17th March, the choir participated in the Bolton Choirs Festival at the Victoria Hall along with other choirs.  Following each choirs performance, comments were passed by Manvinder Rattan, a nationally recognised choral expert, and also Carolyn Baxendale of Bolton Music Services.

Below is a copy of Carolyn's comments

"The choir looked absolutely fantastic, with great appearance and discipline, as they went on stage and throughout the performance.

There was a unified sound in the singing, and particularly noticeable was very striking and beautiful phrasing.  The shaping of phrases, especially crescendo and decrescendo passages, was excellent.

There was a very good balance of the voices and overall choral blend.

Tuning and intonation was generally very good, though there was a bit of "sagging" at the end of some phrases.  Some improvement could be made by increasing the brightness of the vocal tone.  Diction was very clear.  Congratulations especially on the Romanian item, which came across very well, wth great dynamic range and very clear diction!

Phrasing is a real strength of this choir... very beautifully done.  There is a very good mellow sound in quieter passages, but brighter tone in louder passages would help.

This was a superb contribution with very expressive singing all round."

Manvinder's comments.

"A really lively and sprightly performance with tight intonation.  Bravo for choosing to pick a song in Romanian!  Very brave.  I would have liked to have polished the language, but my Romanian isn't all that great...!

This was a good piece to pick; it demanded a very wide dynamic range, which you gave us in spades.  You really look good - you really look like a choir when you are on stage.   Well done!"


On the 16th June, the choir took part  at the Victoria Hall, in an Evening of Song and Dance with the Brixie Singers and Dawn Dawson's Dance Academy.

A wide variety of music was covered, and a programmeof energetic dance routines by the young dancers resulted in a most enjoyable evening.

On the 23rd June was this years Gala Concert at Horwich Parish Church.  It was supported again by the Mayors and Mayoresses of Bolton and Horwich, and a representative from Francis House.  This concert has proved very popular over the last few years, with good attendances raising money for charity.  This year £1577 was raised for Francis House Children's Hospice in Manchester.

A special mention goes to James Warburton, a young violinist, who took part for the first time with the choir at Horwich.  He is a very talented musician, and we hope he will join us again in future events.
