Cantarla Concert at St. Andrew’s Church, Normanby

Thank you to everyone who sang or supported our concert at St Andrew’s Church, Normanby on Wednesday 15th October. The opportunity to use the organ to accompany several items, including solos sung by the choir members was exciting, and a new experience for some. The standard of singing and concentration from all the girls was very high, as normal, and the concert was enjoyed by everyone. It was a pleasure to have several new members take part in a performance for the first time, including our new science teacher, Miss Hazenberg – it is lovely when staff support students in a wide variety of different areas, and not just in their own ‘specialism’. Thank you too to Alison Davis, our singing teacher for her conducting, accompanying, and for preparing most of the soloists. It has been great to have her leadership and encouragement in running the choir this term.

The choral items presented were:

Poor wayfaring Stranger – Trad. American

Lord, let me know mine end – Maurice Greene

Vuelie (Fairest Lord Jesus) – Frode Fjellheim
