The last choir practice before term end on Tuesday 27 March 2023 marked the 30th Birthday Celebration of the choir. The Hall was open from 6.15pm, so that the chairs and equipment could be set up ready for a 7.30pm start. We had contacted as many of the former choir members as possible and invited those that were willing, to join in and sing with the choir again, or just sit and listen. There were 64 singers, with a further dozen or so people in the audience listening. We started the session by singing Trade Winds, The Lord Is My Shepherd (Vicar of Dibley tune), The Lord Bless You And Keep You, followed by Thank You For The Music, The Rhythm Of Life and Hallelujah. We concluded the singing with the medley from Les Miserables, finishing at 8.35pm. We spent the rest of the evening enjoying a party, with nibbles and drinks.
