|Our first concert for 2022 was “GREAT MOVIE THEMES”.|
This performance (staged on October 9th 2022) featured the music of such movie greats as Ennio Morricone and John Williams, (who are renowned for composing the music for “The Mission”, “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”, and “Star Wars”.)
Other gorgeous pieces such as “Dry Your Tears, Afrika” (from “Armistad”), “Exsultate Justi” (from “Empire of the Sun”), and “May it Be” (from “The Lord of the Rings”) were featured.
For those who have a love of orchestral choral music, there was also some lovely classical inclusions from various famous movies.

Note that since resumption of Rehearsals, we have been operating according to current Covid-19 safety requirements.
Our next concert, originally planned for late May, is on hold until the situation has eased sufficiently. It will be held in May 2021, depending on the situation at the time.
