Spring 2023

Spring Sing

At the first of six sessions, more than 25 attended the all age and all ability choir. We sang a musical that includes syncopated rock rhythms as well as more gentle numbers that tell the familiar Holy Week and Easter story in a dramatised way. The choir performed the musical in The Old Library, on intoBodmin's main stage, on Saturday 8 April and one of its songs on Sunday 9 April in St Petroc's Church.
