“WONDERFUL WELCOME AT ST. MARY & ST. NICHOLAS CHURCH, LEATHERHEAD

Sunday 16 November 2014

Chorister, Geraint Hopkins writes - This concert was inspirational and a welcome return visit to Surrey.


Despite the Leatherhead M25 hole in the motorway, the concert started on time. It was one of those afternoon concerts which is difficult to explain how the chemistry between choir and audience moved forward. It was touching, tender and heart-rending to so many, especially during this poignant month of remembrance. The Rector, Graham Osborne said, “This concert was inspirational. It took to the heights we looked for and it rocketed even further.”   

The full Bridgend Male Choir musical team of Rhiannon Williams-Hale; Stephanie Bailey & Scott Williams were in excellent form, the choir was in good voice and the audience was warm and welcoming. Dotted amongst the audience were exiles who were just as enthusiastic as the rest of the audience and they loved the sound of the choir.
