What a glorious day of singing and getting to know Choer Sensible who were visiting North Wales from Orlon St Marie near the Pyrenees. After meeting them for the first time at Bodnant Gardens we shared songs and sang together by the Pin Mill. We reconvened later in the day for an afternoon workshop and shared supper where they presented us with gifts from their locale including wine, chocolate and pate!! Finally a delightful evening concert in St Mary’s Church, Betws Y Coed. Many thanks to the ladies from St Mary’s for making us tea during the concert! Also to Lorraine Langston our Frelsh contact for all her hard work and to Sophie Serougne leader of Choer Sensible. We hope to organise a reciprocal visit in 2015, watch this space!!
A massive THANK YOU!! to everyone that sang, listened, baked, ate, played and danced at our big WaterAid fundraiser. And the final total has passed £3,000!! So in our ten years of singing and also fundraising for WaterAid we’ve raised more than £10,000- amazingly life changing money for such important work!
It was a super, fun day with more than 100 singers from across North Wales joining together for a great concert followed by a superb Ceilidg led by Swing the Cat and all interspersed with tea and homemade cakes. Thanks to Coastal Voices for all their hard work.
Here’s to the next 10 years!!
