Last night (22nd Sep 2018) the people of Brixham were blessed with performances from the Linden Singers Ladies Choir from Torfaen, Pontypool in South Wales. Defying the beginning of the ‘Strictly’ season, the audience weren’t disappointed by the melodies and songs from this premier division welsh choir. The concert was held in St Mary’s Church, Higher Brixham, in aid of church funds and the ladies were the guests of the Brixham Orpheus Male Voice Choir. The Orpheus enjoy holding concerts with other local choirs but to host a group of ladies such as these, was an honour and a privilege and with their wide range of music they were just a joy to listen too. The concert goers also enjoyed listening to local soloist Jan Lobb and her rendition of ‘Your Daddy’s Son’ from the musical ‘Ragtime’ was a complete heart stopper.
The Orpheus travel to Paignton for their next concert on Saturday 20 October at 7.00pm in St Andrews Church, Paignton when they will be joined by the Quay Harmony Ladies Choir and local soloist Graham Carter. Tickets at £5.00 in advance or £8.00 on the door are now available tel: 01803 850642 or visit Keeping Pets, 31 Bolton Street, Brixham.
