The first half of our season is over, with several successful concerts completed.
Our first concert was in St.Paul’s Cathedral in Dundee. It was really good to sing where the acoustics were excellent. We were well received and hopefully we’ll return there soon.
Next, we had a joint concert with our friends from Wales, the Colwyn Male Voice Choir – “Cor Meibion Colwyn” in Welsh. All proceeds from the concert went to a charity called “Haiti Help” run by three local ladies. The sum raised was £1439, a large amount for the charity.
For our next few concerts we handed out survey forms to the audience to gauge their reactions to our programme. On the whole we seem to have a balanced programme that most people like.
Leven Parish Church was our next concert. One of the comments from the survey was “Haven’t seen you for years – excellent variety and beautiful blend of voices”. It’s nice to receive praise like this but another comment said, “Front Row – polish shoes”. Oops!!
Kinross Parish Church was next on the agenda. We thought our performance was very good and the audience gave us good feedback. “Delightful. We haven’t enjoyed an evening like this for a long time and would come again”. Nice to know. “Good variety. Great MD and Accompanist”. We value them greatly. “Liked Pavarotti”. Well done Len! An excellent buffet was provided and much appreciated.
Culross Abbey came next and we needed to be well wrapped up, the audience came in thick coats and hats. We hope the clapping during the concert was not just to warm hands. Some of the comments on the survey we received – “Most enjoyable evening, thank you”, “Very Professional”, “Keep enjoying what you do-bringing joy to your audiences”.
We really appreciate all the comments received and are pleased the audiences enjoyed our performances.
Coming up in the new year is the Fife Festival of Music, we are appearing on Monday 3rd February. This is an opportunity to see a variety of choirs, well worth a visit.
