Spring 2022

The choir was pleased to return to the downstairs schoolroom at Ebenezer Baptist Church. This was our usual practice room before the covid pandemic affected the whole country. We also agreed to alter the times of practices from 6.00-8.00pm.

 

On 21st June, the choir was invited to sing at the funeral of Robert Hucker, the husband of Irene Hucker who has been a choir member for many years. The funeral took place at St. Paul’s Church and many attendees praised the choir for singing so well. It was an honour for the choir to be part of the service as Rob was a valued supporter at many events and will be missed.

Hundred Bundred Concert - Saturday 23rd July

The choir was delighted to perform in a joint concert with Abertillery Orpheus Male Voice Choir at The Met. The concert was to commemorate the work and commitment of Tom Bundred who was the conductor and founder of both choirs.

Mr Bundred had been described as a musical genius and he used his knowledge and talent to create successful and highly regarded choirs.

The audience was very supportive and it was pleasing to see special guests, Iola Ffrancon Davies  and Huw Ffrancon Davies, grandchildren of Tom Bundred.

Both choirs sang a varied selection of pieces from their repertoires and Penny Hughes, our talented accompanist, played two solo pieces.

The Ladies Choir would like to thank the Male Voice Choir for including us in this celebration of Tom Bundred. We appreciate the research and hard work that made the concert a successful, pleasant evening.

AUTUMN 2022

Friday 21st October 2022

The choir visited The National Botanic Garden of Wales to sing in the Great Glass House which is an important feature of the gardens.

We sang a wide range of songs which other visitors enjoyed.

It was very special to perform further afield once again, as the Covid pandemic has curtailed our plans over the last few years.

Although it was a very wet day, the weather brightened enough for choristers to walk around the gardens and enjoy the beautiful displays and landscape. It was wonderful to enjoy each other’s company and to relax in such lovely surroundings. It is certainly a venue that we could visit again, possibly during the spring or summer when the gardens would be in full bloom.

A very successful visit which was enjoyed by all.
