Choir sings for local charities

JANUARY 17: The choir raised substantial sums for two local charities at its two regular Christmas appearances at the Whitgift Centre last month. Donations in the choir’s collecting box benefitted Croydon Vision, also known as the Croydon Voluntary Association for the Blind, and Livability, which runs a centre for young people with learning disabilities in Bromley.

Lana and Andy tie the knot

AUGUST 10:  Lana Bode and Andy Woolhouse got married on Sunday.  Our correspondent (R.D. Hoyle) reports:

Rather like the late Cilla Black and much of the nation wanting a wedding to ensue from a couple meeting on Blind Date, the choir had its first 'Blind Date moment' when ex-baritone section leader Andy Woolhouse married ex-choir pianist Lana Bode in an affecting outdoor ceremony at Oaks Farm in Croydon on Sunday August 9.

The happy couple


Choir has Christmas fun!

DECEMBER 13: The Croydon choir celebrated Christmas with two fine concerts in the past three days.    The choir sang to the usual intimate audience at Merstham Village Hall on Thursday, then packed in the crowds for its traditional Croydon Welsh concert at Shirley Methodist Church on Saturday.  There was also a presentation to two retiring choir stalwarts.

Care home sing

Some two dozen took part, including ten members of the choir walking group who had set off from the Fox in Coulsdon two hours before.

Choir musical director Richard Hoyle said he was proud that the choir had risen so superbly to the occasion.  The choir opened with Edvard Grieg’s resounding Brothers, Sing On – the first time it had performed the piece – and more than achieved the full fortissimo required for the opening words.

“I couldn’t believe the power the choir was giving,” Richard said.  “It was quite thrilling.”
