Another terrific Annual Concert where we said farewell to our Director Chis Holley. We raised £552.40 for This Way Up, which works in Solihull secondary schools among young people who are coping with loss in their lives eg bereavement or family breakdown.

Our accompanist George Ireland, who also serenaded us with ‘Au Clair De La Lune’ and Beethoven’s Pathétique. Thank you so much George
Chris joking with the audience. Some of us laughed!
Cheryl Hawkins, Director of This Way Up, sharing some of the fantastic work, this charity does in Solihull Secondary schools.
Will Tuckwell our virtuoso guitarist playing one of his two jazz pieces, including ‘A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square’. Great stuff!
Chris Holley receiving a standing ovation from the choir – richly deserved. Chris will shortly be moving to Cardiff, Shirley’s loss is certainly Cardiff’s gain.
