At the invitation of Edgecumbe Chapel we gave a lovely concert there. We had planned one at All Saints Church, Falmouth earlier in the month but we had to cancel because of a really awful weather forecast. Hopefully we will reschedule as soon as possible.

 END OF JULY 2017

We had a photo shoot in order to update our choir photographs now that our numbers have swelled. It was supposed to be at Stithians Lake but the weather had other ideas so we went to the lovely chapel at Carnon Downs. The photographer was very patient and there was much hilarity!

True Grit!

Saturday 9th December was memorable because an icy Arctic blast brought freezing temperatures and snow to many parts of the UK. Luckily the snow did not reach Cornwall but Stithians Ladies needed all their resolve when they reached their concert venue … Budock Church, with all its ethereal beauty, had a heating malfunction! With enviable stoicism they tackled the first part of their programme wearing their fetching red and black uniform …but after a while, watching The Saxy Maids struggle with their very cold fingers … (but somehow making a gorgeous sound)

MD Bea, herself resorting to the trusty duffle coat …gave the order to don the coats and scarves. Relief!

Considering the conditions everyone did remarkably well – including the audience, all of whom stayed with us and enjoyed some truly fabulous music. The Saxy Maids swung some gorgeous arrangements, accompanist Rico introduced us to a new composer, President Thelma read a humorous poem

and Lee brought the house down with her Santa hat!

… you try singing whilst in fits of laughter! Actually it was just what we needed at that point and spirits were lifted as we approached the final song. Afterwards everyone was very glad of a nice cup of tea and some beautiful home made refreshments, really pleased that they had been able to support Children’s Hospice South West whose representative came along to explain how the donations make a huge difference to their work.

Thanks also to compere Andrew Thomas who was obviously tougher than  everyone – note the lack of outer garments!

This concert was memorable in several ways, raising a significant sum for a truly worthy cause and raising the awareness of many people that Stithians Ladies always rise to a challenge and will not be defeated!

STITHIANS LADIES CHOIR.                                                                          for the joy of music and friendship
