After plenty of hard work learning brand new pieces during the early months of 2010, July arrives and it’s time for the first of two Summer Concerts. The venue was St Helen’s Catholic Church in Caerphilly and took place on Friday 2nd July at 7.30pm.
Our guest performer at this concert was Clare Phillips (Soprano). Nigel Jones conducted with Ceri Gifford-Berry on piano accompaniment.
The programme included the pieces which we had worked on during the Spring term.
Caerphilly Community Chorus
- Glory to thee (Thomas Tallis)
- All things bright and beautiful (John Rutter)
- The gift to be simple (arr. Bob Chilcott)
- Ah Robyn (William Cornysh)
- Ar lan y mor (arr. Nigel Jones)
- Praise his holy name (Keith Hampton)
- Bridge over troubled water (Paul Simon)
We enjoyed another warm reception from our audience and thanked them with welsh cakes and tea/coffee in the church hall afterwards.
