Choral Society in fine voice for charity singing challenge
of Burnham and Highbridge Choral Society this week joined more
than 280 singers from across the region in taking part in a musical
challenge to raise cash for charity.
singers gathered at the Colston Hall in Bristol for the day-long
event, held in aid of Cancer Research UK.
idea was to learn a programme of music, mostly on the day, and
then perform it to the audience who were invited to donate to
the charity," the society's Julie Skinner told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
members of the choir had never met the David Pitts Scratch Chorus
and Orchestra before, let alone played or sung with them, which
meant they all faced a real challenge.
added: "Having said that, each person gave an enthusiastic
performance and, judging from the flag waving, it went down very
well. We enjoyed the experience so much that we are all hoping
to take part again next year."
