On Tuesday, 19th February, we were delighted to have a visit from the Senior Youth Choir of St Peter’s Community Arts Academy, Geneva, New York. The 32 talented choristers, aged 12-18, came in the afternoon to rehearse and to entertain our Forget Me Not Café – a large audience as the Café has grown to almost 40 people. Then they gave their concert in the evening to the delight of a very full church. They presented works from the classical choral tradition as well as American spirituals and Broadway musicals, finishing up with an excellent and very moving performance of music from Les Misérables. After the concert we had an opportunity to meet the choir over refreshments in the schoolroom. The collection for Save the Children amounted to £413.76, and the choir gave £150 towards our building fund. Video.
Thank you, St Peter's, for visiting us - we loved your music and hope very much that you will come again.
