What’s coming up in 2019…
A warm welcome to Horncastle & District Choral Society website.
Thank you to all who come to our May concert at St Mary’s Church, Horncastle, when the choir sang Anthems Through the Ages, from Tomás Luis de Victoria to John Rutter, and selections from the operas of Gilbert and Sullivan. There was a full church with a warmly appreciative audience. We hope to see you at our next concert, on Saturday, December 7th – further details to be announced soon.
A Fond Farewell
It was with mixed emotions that the choir performed its May concert last weekend.
The excitement and delight of presenting a well-rehearsed programme was overshadowed by the knowledge that this would be our last under the direction of Caroline Boden.
Caroline has given of herself over her five years with us.
Her thorough preparation for rehearsals has been evident, and her talent for getting the best out of us, with unfailing dedication, dynamism and good humour very much appreciated.
Caroline, we thank you wholeheartedly, and will miss you.
