I have been a happily singing member of the Questor’s Choir since January 2013 and it has given me great joy. However, in August my partner Andy and I step on board a 70 foot racing yacht, with 20 other amateurs and one professional skipper to race against 11 other yachts: challenging our limits to raise money for the Motor Neurone Association in memory of our dear friend Clare who died of MND in 2013. Clare’s partner Jon died of cancer 18 months before her, so after 38 years together, they each died of insidious, progressive diseases, both aged 58.
The main event of each Sangerstevne is the Festival on the Saturday afternoon and evening. A series of concerts will be held in St Matthew's Church, North Common Road, Ealing W5 2QA. Read more about the Festival at http://www.pnms.co.uk/sangerstevne/english/english_2015.html
A wonderful and entertaining evening was had by all. A good turn out for a Summer Concert which included a piece written by the accompanist Richard Wilkins which was premiered at the concert. He was extremely happy with the performance.
Pieces arranged by the Musical Director Philip Norman were also very well received, particularly with amusement the way he kept the choir holding one note on his piece Kalinka.
