Songs for the Summer with Penistone Ladies

A huge thank you to everyone who made our evening such a success – both choirs performed fabulous sets! The choir and audience sang two local folk songs together – 6 Jolly Miners (led by Duncan & arr. by Joe Shaw) & The Grand Pubs of Yorkshire (led by Michael B). Our 2 joint numbers were The Circle of Life from the Lion King, and The Lord’s Prayer by Albert Hay Malotte. What a wonderful combined sound!! Thanks to all the tea and coffee helpers, Melvyn for being our ticket officer on the door, and the ladies choir for organising the raffle and programs. Thanks go to both our pianists too, both choirs are blessed with super talented musicians who accompany them each week – Philip Sutcliffe and Yvonne Woffenden.
