During our recent joint concert, we found that a member of their choir, Chris Bryant,had been recently diagnosed with a serious illness, and was receiving end of life care. He has now passed away. Ray, our outgoing chairman, has passed on condolences to his wife Myra, to his family, and to the members of Bristol Male Voice Choir.
What a fabulous time we’ve had in Bristol.
Thursday 3rd Sept – a wonderful concert in Bristol Cathedral, wonderful acoustics for a selection of sacred pieces.
Friday 4th Sept a after a day out in Bath, we welcome the gents of Bristol MVC and their MD Jo to a social evening! What a wonderful evening, where new friends were made, and much fun and laughter was heard. Performances from 15+ choir members and friends, with a presentation of Yorkshire goodies to the boys of BMVC, after which they led us in a singalong to end the most amazing night!
Saturday 5th night – all up for a morning rehearsal with Rachel and Philip… after which we enjoyed a trip to Bristol to see the SS Brunel, and the canal basin. Some of us even went on the Ferris Wheel…
Back for an amazing meal (the Hilton food in Bristol comes highly recommended), before a joint concert. What a found those joint items made!
We finished our evening with an afterglow in the bar. It was so energetic the staff found it tricky to call last orders! Much singing and laughter (and some dancing) was still going on until the small hours.
Thank you to Ray and Steve for all their organisation! Everyone has had a smashing time, and can’t wait for our 2023 trip… soon to be unveiled! (But a little birdie tells us it might be to the Lake District!)
