Frome Youth Choir recently celebrated the summer sun with a free concert of sunshiny songs in Christ Church on Christchurch Street West.
The 30-strong choir, who range in age from seven to 13, spread rays of joy with a programme that included:
- ‘California Dreamin’
- ‘Here Comes the Sun’
- ‘A Million Dreams’
- ‘Queen Medley’
- ‘The Seagulls Song’
- ‘We Do Jazz!’
The choir’s director, Steph Collishaw said: ‘The children worked really hard all term to learn these sparkling songs off by heart and they loved spreading lots of sunshine when they performed them on Saturday 30 June. They particularly liked it when we taught the audience how to sing “Freedom”, so everyone could join in! It was great to see the church so full of supportive families and friends.’
After the concert, the choir bid a fond farewell to joint choir director Jo Richards who has stepped down. The children presented her with a beautiful necklace and a card which each of them had signed.
The choir is now enjoying a well-earned summer break.
