A GREAT EVENING WITH THE ORPHEUS SINGERS!
The Swift Singers recently joined with The Orpheus Singers and held a musical Spring concert at Sweyne School in Rayleigh. The audience was treated to a
vast array of music and songs from different periods, all sung with enthusiasm
and vitality. The ladies’ choirs shared centre stage to sing a selection of songs featuring ‘All That Jazz’ and ‘Chattanooga Choo Choo’ whilst the Swifts entertained the audience with songs from spirituals, shows and popular music – ‘You Are So Beautiful’, ‘The Wind Beneath My Wings’, ‘California Dreaming’ to name but a few. Not to be outdone, the Orpheus Ladies sang their hearts out to favourites such as ‘Smoke Gets In Your Eyes’, ‘Danny Boy’, ‘Shenandoah’ – and many more.
If you didn’t come – you couldn’t blame the snow – you missed a great
evening. The Rt Hon Mark Francois, MP for Rayleigh & Wickford (check out the photo gallery) agreed that it was a great concert with two fantastic choirs. Our next concert is the Senior Citizen’s Concert on 26th February – tickets are sold out. But don’t worry; get ready for our concert with the Croydon Male Voice Choir on 28th April at the Holy Trinity Church in South Woodham – a guaranteed evening of songs, music and laughter. More details to follow later.
