Band & Choir Concert
Wednesday 19th July 2017, 8:00pm to 9:30pm
Location: Saint Bartholomew's Church
Remember Carnival Wednesday is music night with our band and choir concert. The concert starts in St Bartholomew's Church at 8:00pm.
This year we have our very own Lostwithiel Town Band, ably under the supervision of their Musical Director, Norman Pendray, who is also well known as a one of the finest exponents of the Post Horn Gallop. The Band is complemented by a welcome return visit of the Polperro Fishermen’s choir. On this occasion we are delighted that our Concert Compere is the Reverend Paul Beynon, who needs no introduction as he is our own Rector of the Benefice of Lostwithiel Parishes.
As in the previous years, the concert is free and seats cannot be booked in advance, so get there early for the best seats in the house. There will be a retiring bucket collection at the end of the concert in support of the Friends of St Batholomew’s, best known to us all as FOSB, who’s mission is to raise money for the maintenance of the Church, so please give what you can.
Our thanks this year go to our sponsors, the Royal Oak. Their support is vital for a successful concert and they have offered to host the après concert soiree where you will be assured of a warm welcome with the opportunity to join informal singing with some choir members. The Royal Oak is only a short walk from the Church, up North Street and then across to Duke Street, so do join us and maybe add your voices to some of the old favourites.
A great evening is assured!
