Christmas is a busy time for the choir and our first yuletide performance was at Colne Parish Church to sing at a short service before walking to the Market Hall entrance to lead the carol singing. It’s a magical start to the Christmas period, topped off with a thrilling firework display in the centre of town.
Friday 9th November saw an informal gathering of Pendle’s Youth and Children’s Choirs at Trinity Baptist Church in the centre of Colne. The Just Us concert was an opportunity for members of both choirs to take the spotlight in an eclectic night of solos, duos, trios and ensembles performing a range of musical styles to thrill the audience. The friendly and inviting atmosphere showed the choirs’ real strength as an inclusive and fun group of truly talented young people.
