Ashburton Sings Soirèe an Absolute Success!

Congratulations to the Ashburton Singers for an incredibly successful soirèe – who would have believed it was your very first one?

In the words of Kym –  “the choir performed wonderfully (and had a lot of fun!), and the introductions by members were heart-warming and effortlessly showed the community spirit of the choir. The audience was quite large, very appreciative, and also joined in singing with us for most of the songs, I think once we did some of our warm ups with them the ice was broken and they couldn’t keep quiet!”

Keep an eye out for photos which are soon to come, as well as a special recording…!

Well done to all.

Don’t forget about your holidays – Ashburton Sings will be breaking Wednesday 26th September, returning Wednesday 10th October.
