Come & Sing 18th May 2024

They came and they sang….

As part of the celebration of their 75th Anniversary, the Society hosted a ‘Come & Sing’ session on Saturday 18th May. There was an open invitation to newcomers and members of other choirs in the North East and several of these attended to join in an exploration of the Great American Songbook. The session was led by David Murray, our Musical Director, with input from Anne Marie Owens, the President of the Society, and all very ably accompanied by Jenny Sykes. Singing a wide range of items from the Carpenters to Garfunkel and others of that era, it gave the welcome visitors an opportunity to sing music which was perhaps rather different to their usual repertoire. For the BCS choir members it was part of their preparations for a full concert on June 15th (full details in the Events section of this website).
