Carol Concert 2011 at Hugglescote Parish Church

On Saturday 17th December 2011 we again welcomed, as our guests, Leicestershire Co-op Snibston Band to be with us at our annual carol Concert, the first under the direction of our new Musical Director, Andrew Goff.

What a great night it was, with carols, readings (both serious and amusing), beautiful Christmas songs and anthems sung by the choir and brilliant music from the band!

There were mince pies and wine at the interval, and the large audience seemed to have a great evening to start off their Christmas festivities in fine style.

The final band item was a fantastic piece called ‘Kingdom Triumphant’ which shook the rafters of the church.

On 9th July 2011, we held our Summer Concert at Castle Rock High School, Coalville. This was our first concert with our new Musical Director, Andrew Goff and included a variety of works from all parts of the world from the Malaysian Chan Mali Chan to Marvin Hamlish’s ‘The Way We Were’ plus piano solos from BLCS accompanist, Anthony Wilson.

For many people, the highlight of the evening was a performance of a seven part work -  ‘Gloria’ - composed by our MD, Anthony Goff.
