Choir lightens the mood for summer

Our summer 2024 concert was a sell-out success. Extra chairs had to be brought in to accommodate a capacity audience at St James’s Church in Dursley.

Songs from the Shows included medleys of music from George and Ira Gershwin, Rodgers and Hammerstein and Cole Porter, plus extracts from Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and the Lion King.

Chair Magnus Carter said, “After three big audiences for our concerts in 2023, we are delighted with the strength of response for this one. We have a loyal following for our classical concerts, and this one cast the net a bit wider. It was very much a family show.”

Tyndale Choral now has 90 singing members – more than ever before in its 65-year history. More than 70 members took part in this concert. The conductor, as usual, was Ben Sawyer, who has now led the choir for more than 10 years. The piano accompaniment was by Julian Elloway, a long-term friend of the choir.

Tyndale’s winter concert, in November, will feature Bach’s rarely performed Christmas Oratorio.
