Choir’s festival pride

Bridgnorth-based all-female choir Concordia were delighted to be placed third in the North Wales Choral Festival held in November in Llandudno. The choir, who have been together for less than three years, sang items by Mozart and Paul Simon as well as ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’ in this, their first competition entry.

Musical director Beverley Wightman, who first formed the choir, told WW! she was particularly pleased considering many of the other ensembles were larger and more experienced. She added, “We’re not a community choir, but any singers who have sung in a choir before would be welcome to join us.” Concordia meets on Thursdays at the Community Hall, Low Town at 7.30pm. Call 07733 316992 for further details.
