Joint Concert and Barn Dance with the Canbury Singers

What a fantastic evening! 

Reading A440 and the Canbury Singers enjoyed sharing the stage at All Saints Church, Wokingham on Saturday 2nd March. Our lovely audience was treated to a wonderful and varied concert. The programme included I Will Lift Mine Eyes (Jake Runestad) and I was Glad (C Hubert H Parry) sung as joint choir items.

Following this choral feast, we continued the evening fun by dancing the night away to the Craigievar Ceilidh band. The event ended with a delicious fish and chip supper that was enjoyed by all.

It was lovely making new friends and we look forward to meeting again in August for a very special event! More news on that to follow!
