Despite coughs and colds members of the Crediton Singers delighted an audience of around 60 people at Penstone Glade, Penstone, Colebrooke, on Saturday evening 24th September. The event, billed as Soul Singing, was fun, friendly and positive as families from local villages enjoyed the singing, refreshments and entertainment.
This is exactly the sort of event the choir enjoys supporting; organised by the Penstone Glade Community Association, we helped to raise money for maintaining a green space that enables local people to take time out, relax and be at one with nature. The focus on positivity, mental health and community is perfect…
Choir member Devorah Langford reads a poem by a Ukrainian writer during our successful Cheriton Fitzpaine concert held in Saturday April 23rd.
Despite this being a small village, with other events happening nearby and over the same weekend, we still managed to raise an impressive £335 for the British Red Cross Appeal.
Two further charity concerts in this series are to be held; at Yeoford Community Hall on Saturday May 21st at 4pm, featuring Clare Watson, the Crediton Singers, and soloists, featuring new songs and anthems, and at Crediton Methodist Church on Saturday 18th June, again at 4pm.
CREDITON SINGERS SMASH TOTAL RAISED! £912 COLLECTED FOR BRITISH RED CROSS UKRAINE APPEAL ON SATURDAY 2ND APRIL!
120 local people packed into the Crediton Methodist Church on Union Rd at 4pm, Saturday 2nd April. A fantastic £912 was raised.
In an incredible concert that saw the choir produce its best event yet, singer Clare Watson wowed the audience with vocal classics Caro Mio Ben (Giordani), Pie Jesu (Faure) and Somewhere (Bernstein), the choir sang popular choral favourites by composers John Rutter, Bob Chilcott, and Lisa Quartel, 60s hitmakers The Seekers and by supergroup Journey.
Choir Musical Director Tim Matthews played piano classics by Bach, Mozart, Yann Tiersen, and Thomas Dunhill while his pupils Willem Snowden and Yagoda Radominska impressed the audience with their enthusiasm and choice of music. Rosalind Moseley and Devorah Langford read beautiful, poignant poems and David and Barbara Greenwood offered violin and vocal solos to add to a varied and exciting concert.
Our heartfelt thanks are given to all those who supported this event; our wonderful choir for their efforts before and during the concert, to our soloists, to local people in their moving response to people in need, to Crediton businesses who advertised and promoted the concert and, last but not least, to the Methodist Church for offering such fantastic help and support.
This whole thing was put together in just two weeks. We should all be proud!
