Charity Concert & Wedding (and Baptism) - 29th October
- Created: Monday, 31 October 2016 16:14
On Saturday 29th October the choir formed part of a concert double header. We started the day with an afternoon wedding of Lewis & Emma at St Fagans church in Trecynon. The choir was honored to be a small part of their wedding day and we waved goodbye to the new bride to the tune of “This is the Moment”. The choir also supported (unexpectedly) a Baptism which was tagged onto the end of the wedding. A surprise indeed but we were more than happy to lend a voice to the congregational hymn! The choir were then whisked away to St Andrews Church in Roath to support our very own Jayne Thomas and her charity concert to raise funds and awareness of the little understood and very difficult to diagnose Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). The promotional video for this event can be seen by following THIS LINK. Annie Amelia Harry (pictured below) was in attendance who is suffering from EDS and we hope the charity event managed to raise over £2,000 to help this growing charity. A huge thank you to Jayne for not only organising the event but playing so professionally for both Cwmbach and the combined choirs of Women in Harmony and Male Voice who also graced this event. A review of the concert by the Cardiffian can be read by following THIS LINK. Many thanks go to our MD Dr Mike Thomas who not only guided us through a range of songs but who also thoroughly entertained the audience as our compère. And finally our thanks are extended to Sheridan George (our very own bottom bass and organist) for accompanying Jayne on many of the songs and adding that little bit extra special to the sound by playing the church organ so gracefully.
