Blackwood Miners’ Institute 2011

Our first concert of 2011 was a big one! Performing at Blackwood Miners’ Institute on Friday 20th May was the Choir’s first professionally produced stage concert. Up until now we had only performed at local Churches and The Big Cheese. With the stage lights in our eyes and a near capacity audience (once again including local dignitaries), we stepped up to the mark and did ourselves proud.

Our repertoire for the performance was a mix of established pieces such as “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and new works for the summer like the “Medley From Les Misérables”.

Triawd were once again our guest performers (they performed at our very first concert) and again graced us with their stunning A capella vocals.
