Christmas Concert 2022

Christmas doesn’t feel like Christmas without a carol concert! It was lovely to be back in Christ Church, Stone to sing carols and perform Stuart Johnson’s new cantata One Night in Bethlehem which was a sung narration of the Christmas story with carols woven in between. Harriet filled the church with her glorious voice in the solo part and Stuart took on conducting the choir. He must be proud of his daughter and the choir all loved singing his composition.

Celebration! Autumn concert 2021

Our first concert after what felt like a long absence and we wanted to celebrate in style. We started with Vivaldi’s Gloria and then with Stuart Johnson’s Missa Celebra which had been written specially for us in the year of our 50th anniversary (2018). It was such a joy to sing both of these works.

2021 – the year we resumed in person

The Stone Civic Parade 2021 had been postponed from earlier in the year but was a well attended event. It had representatives from the choir and a brass band accompanying the new Mayor and many other dignitaries.

The summer barbecue July 2021 at Oulton village hall proved a happy time for a reunion.

July and August 2021 in The Barn at The Crossing, Stone.

At last we were able to sing together in person – definitely something to celebrate!

Zimbe! workshop February 2020

We all had a great time at the workshop day and welcomed around 40 guests to sing with us. Cakes and singing are a happy combination and we had plenty of both. As we have come to expect, Harriet and Jenny gave us a fantastic musical experience with their conducting and piano playing. We are looking forward to singing this collection of songs with other choirs int he Victoria Hall, Stoke-on-Trent on 25th March. Martin took photos and videos – see the links below.

For the first time we were joined by Keele University Brass band who provided the extra Christmas spirit in the concert. Thank you KUBB and their leader Katharine Slater.

We performed a wide variety of carols from medieval times to 21st century compositions. Audience and performers all enjoyed mince pies and wine at the interval.
