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!
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.
This song was recorded at our most recent concert in Falmouth
where we raised £1000 for Marie Curie Cornwall
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.
Stithians Ladies with Holman Climax Male Voice Choir. 20th May 2017
We shall be inviting representatives from Marie Curie Cornwall to visit us soon so that we can present a cheque which will help in their invaluable work.
Watch this space!
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.
At our recent concert in support of Marie Curie we sang a song which lasted just a minute ….

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.
We are really looking forward to our next concert ..
Our guests are the renowned Holman Climax Male Voice Choir
… with a special appearance of talented ‘cellist, soprano and composer Becky McGlade
… not forgetting our fabulous accompanist, composer and author Rico Gerber
… and compère Adrian Wilton completes the stellar line-up.
We are delighted to present this wonderful evening of music to support Marie Curie so do come along and share it with us. Tickets ( only £5 ) are available at the door or contact any choir member.

Who would have thought it?
Our latest Charity fundraising concert was a resounding success, musically, socially and financially. So much so that we presented ANOTHER cheque for £1000!, this time to the Cornwall Down’s Syndrome Support Group.
Pictured above are members of the choir at their practice on Thursday March 30th with President Thelma together with choir member Audrey, (in the pink scarf) her grandson Jayden and his parents, Paul and Sandra, representing the charity.
Jayden has ambitions to be our accompanist!
We realise that our contribution will make a difference to the lives of those local people who rely on the support of this amazing group. We are tremendously grateful to those good folk who continue to encourage the choir by coming to concerts, giving raffle prizes, helping out and digging deep into their pockets. Any project like this is a joint venture and lots of people should be very proud of this tremendous result.
So on we go to our next concert, fundraising for Marie Curie – only 8 weeks to go! Why not join us there?
Saturday 20th May 7.30 at Falmouth Methodist Church on the Moor.
with special guests Holman Climax Male Voice Choir
and Becky McGlade ‘cello.

Earth hour, marked by communities throughout the world, was at 20.30 last Saturday … right in the middle of our concert! It was a little unrealistic to do a whole hour in the dark ( without a lot of forward planning anyway ) but we did manage to perform one song with the chapel lights as dim as possible. It wasn’t much but at least we did mark the occasion in our small corner of Cornwall.
