Past Events

 

Choir has been running since early 2011. Here are some of the events we've been involved in.

Summer Concert, 11th July 2017

We had an excellent turnout for our Summer Concert at Walthew House. The room was stifling hot and I think we could have made a fortune selling ice creams (or even buckets of water for plunging heads into)! Nevertheless, the choir was in good voice and performed a set of ten songs admirably with our friends from BASIC.

In the first half, we started with old favourite "Rhythm of Life", then gave "Put A Little Love in your Heart" its first public airing. Then came "Come Fly With Me", sung acapella. We finished the first half with a couple of new songs, "Fever" and the emotion-stirring "On My Own".

The choir served drinks, snacks and cakes during the interval, while everyone tried to cool down. We re-opened with "Hallelujah, Get Happy", then a run of three new songs: "Memory", "Could it be Magic" and the tricky "Man in the Mirror" - we'd obviously been doing our homework as I think this was the best we've performed it. BASIC took front of stage for the finale "Something Inside So Strong".

Thanks to everyone who came to listen to us. We had a great time singing for you!

Concert for the Parkers, 10th Feb 2017

A very full St Georges Church hosted a fund-raising event for the Parker family on Friday evening, who were dealt a cruel blow when mother Jo was badly injured by a falling tree in Lyme Park. We were treated to performances by Helen and colleagues of popular classical string pieces from composers including Tchaikovsky and John Williams. St Georges school choir delighted us and women's choir Smithey Belles performed magnificently.

Stockport Community Choir sung "Come Fly With Me" and "Hallelujah" before joining the other two choirs for a magnificent and uplifting finale of "Sing" (written by Gary Barlow and Andrew Lloyd Webber) and "Something Inside So Strong" (Labi Siffre's 1990 hit).
