CHOIR HOLDS ITS ANNUAL DINNER AND REFLECTS ON A BUSY, SUCCESSFUL YEAR
The choir held their annual dinner at The Old Rectory, Llangattock on 21st July. Thanks were given to Sian Jones and Ann John for organising a very successful event and Irene Hucker was thanked for arranging transport.
The choir is very hard working with many choristers taking on extra duties to ensure that fund raising, concerts and events run smoothly. We are indebted to every member of the choir and appreciate their loyalty and commitment. Steve Bard and Penny Hughes were thanked for their musical expertise and for helping to create a wide repertoire of music for us to present at concerts.
This year has been very busy with our most recent event taking place at St. Illtyd's
Primary School, Llanhilleth. We were pleased to sing alongside the school choir at
the Year 6 leaver's assembly and found it to be a very joyful and uplifting experience.
The most memorable event this year was our tour of The WW1 battlefields in Belgium and thanks were given to Val Hatton for organising it.
We were extremely proud to sing at the Last Post Ceremony at the world famous Menin Gate in Ypres. It was an enormous honour to pay tribute to all those who sacrificed so much. The presence of a Scottish Pipes and Drums Band made the occasion very special. It was a very emotional task to sing in front of so many international visitors but the choir performed very well, moving many of the audience to tears.
The choir also presented a concert at St George's Memorial Chapel, Ypres and the
varied repertoire was greatly appreciated by all those who attended. Touring the
battlefields and laying wreaths and poppies for all those who never returned was
something we will always remember with fondness and enormous pride -
