14. Joint Birthday Concert, 25 November 2011


On Friday 25 November we performed in a joint concert with Barrow Male Voice Choir and Dalton Town Band. As well as being the Ghyll Singers' 70th anniversary, 2011 is Barrow Male Voice Choir's 80th and Dalton Town Band's 140th! This concert therefore celebrated 290 years of Furness music-making! It was a lovely evening, with a big, appreciative audience, raising a tidy sum for Barrow & District Disability Association. St James' church (Barrow-in-Furness) rang with Handel's Hallelujah chorus at the finale. It was good fun to perform with our friends in the male voice choir and the band, and to hear their individual performances.

After the concert, we enjoyed another of Sarah's gorgeous cakes - this time in the shape of a piano!!
