Choirs’ standing ovation said it all

On behalf of the Inner Wheel Club of Sidmouth I would like to thank all who supported our Saturday concert given by the male voice choirs of Budleigh Salterton and Ystrad Mynach, which raised just over £1,100 for Arthritis Research UK.

The choirs presented a most varied and beautiful programme of 27 items – from opera through to more modern songs from popular musicals, some with such harmonious arrangements, creating a very emotional atmosphere.

They were ably guided by their very accomplished musical directors and talented accompanists.

The evening was brought to a close with the rousing rendition of Morte Criste by Emrys Jones, when the choir was joined by some talented male singers from the audience.

The standing ovation said it all, and we left the church with wonderful melodies ringing in our ears and hearts.
