At our Spring concert on the 29th March, we welcomed Linda Bailey to her first concert and Cathy Heaton to her last!
It was with much anticipation that we prepared for our Spring concert held on the 29th March in the URC, Maldon. Word was out of the brand new Grand Piano that we would be using, a Steinway no less! As expected, the Piano was amazing and our accompanist and musical director, Derrick and Clive, entertained the audience with solo pieces and duets. Our programme included My Fair Lady, Steal away, Whispering and the cups song to name but a few. we welcomed Linda, one of our altos to her first concert and sadly had to say goodbye to Cathy, a soprano who has left us to travel Europe: we’re not jealous at all! During the concert, we were delighted to present a cheque for £1000 to Hospital Radio, Chelmsford which was accepted by their representative, Eric Smart. If you missed the concert but would like to see some of the fun we had, some of the songs can be found on You Tube, just search for “Swift Singers”. Many thanks to Linda’s daughter for posting us out there for all to see! We are performing again on the 12th July at the William de Ferrers centre. If you would like tickets, watch the website and local press for availability closer to the time.
