A nice round figure!

OUR SUPPORT FOR MARIE CURIE

President Thelma and deputy treasurer Connie hold aloft our Big Cheque surrounded by representatives from Marie Curie ( in yellow ) and choir members.

Of course the title of this article could apply to many of our dear lady choir members! ( we do love a cream tea! ) but in this instance it refers to the wonderful sum of money we were able to donate to Marie Curie Cornwall. For the third time in a row we raised an incredible £1000 at a concert, this latest one being the superb musical evening that we shared with Holman Climax MVC in May. Here is a slide show of the concert – a good time was had by all!

We do love a cream tea!

Stithians Ladies 50th Anniversary Reunion Cream Tea

The Stithians Centre was alive with the sound of laughter and chitchat this afternoon as the Ladies invited past members and friends to share a lovely cream tea.

You can judge from this slide-show that a good time was had by all!

TOGETHER

Here is a little video in celebration of Stithians Ladies Choir’s 50 years of making music, making friends, making money for charity and having a ball at the same time! The photos are from concerts and events over the past few years and will bring back many happy memories for members and audiences alike.

ENJOY!

This song was recorded at our most recent concert in Falmouth

where we raised £1000 for Marie Curie Cornwall

~~~

Another £1000!

WE ARE PROUD

Yes. For the third time in a row a Stithians Ladies concert has raised £1000 for charity. Well, to be honest, we made nearly that amount after expenses and the members voted unanimously to make it up to the round figure.

Watch this space!

Be Thou My Vision

The Ladies added this song to their repertoire just in time for our recent concert in aid of Marie Curie. They loved learning it and singing it so here is the very first public performance. As it was recorded on a little gizmo from the audience there is a little distortion towards the end – sorry!

“Be Thou My Vision” arr. Dan Forrest

Rico Gerber accompanies on piano with Becky McGlade ‘cello.

A beautiful addition

Stithians Ladies shared a superb concert with Holman Climax Male Voice Choir on Saturday 20th May in the fabulous acoustic of Falmouth Methodist Church.

As an added bonus they were joined by the amazingly talented ‘cellist Becky McGlade and here she is, accompanied by the equally amazing Rico Gerber, playing The Swan by Camille Saint-Saens. ( This was recorded from the audience on a small gizmo so try to listen on a computer with good speakers! )

Enjoy … we certainly did!

A full report of the concert will be posted here very soon so –

watch this space to find out how much was raised for Marie Curie.
