18 December 2018
The choir enjoyed an exceptionally successful performance of Messiah in Sheffield Cathedral on Monday 3 December 2018, with audience reporting it to be our ‘best ever’! Everyone appreciated the National Festival Orchestra’s confident rendition, and the power and accuracy of local soprano Ella Taylor. Counter tenor David Allsopp sang with wonderful sensitivity, and tenor David Brown and bass Quentin Brown gave excellent support.
This annual performance always features a retiring collection for the cathedral’s excellent Archer Project, which this year raised an amazing £1324.55, way higher than last year and quite probably the choir’s highest collection ever for this worthy cause. The choir is grateful to the audience members for their generous contributions.
The choir also sing carols at Waitrose, which raised £131 for choir funds as well as being a cheerful and fun event for all concerned. Thanks are due to everyone who turned out to sing, but a special thank you to David Sanderson for keeping us all in good order!
Here’s wishing all our supporters a very merry Christmas!
