Bodmin Town Band invited Bodmin Way Community Choir to perform in concert with them in A Christmas Festival.
Colin Hudson compered and conducted Bodmin’s very own brass band as they played a variety of music. The sound was amazing.
The uniquely decorated trees of St. Petroc’s Church annual Christmas Tree Festival made a fitting place for the mid-December’s concert, with more than 130 people gathering to listen, enjoy and join in with community carols.
Frosty The Snowman made an appearance.
The choir, established last autumn, was thrilled to be invited to sing at the concert of Bodmin’s popular and award winning band.
Caroline Bailey, musical director and conductor, took it all in her stride and prepared the choir expertly for their first major performance.
The intergenerational choir has more than 30 members who meet for Spring Sing, Autumn Song and Summer Singing and always likes to welcome new singers.
One choir member had the winning raffle ticket to conduct the band, which she did magnificently and with gusto.
Band and choir plan to perform again.
