The Concert with the Czech Youth Choir was a great success. We had a very large audience and the numbers associated with two choirs meant we had a bit of a squeeze to find somewhere to sit. The programme was extremely varied. It was a happy coincidence that both choirs included the Hallelujah Chorus and everyone seemed to enjoy both versions! Maybe if we perform together again, we could prepare a piece to perform jointly as a ‘Continental Chorus’ ? It was a privilege to share the stage with such very talented young people.
We have also developed a deeper relationship with our twin town friends from Lünen. Here is a link to an amateur video of the choir performing Vivaldi’s Gloria in Germany:
A group of our hosts travelled to Salford at the weekend and on Sunday 11th October we performed Gloria again within a 1 hour concert for them, followed by a delicious banquet provided by the choir.
We wanted to show our appreciation for the warm welcome we received this year and we are excitedly looking forward to visiting again in 2016
