Choirs in harmony

Three local choirs came together in May to help raise money for the Bridgnorth Hospital League of Friends. The Bridgnorth Community Pop Choir, Bridgnorth Gospel and Soul Choir and the newly-formed Bridgnorth Show Choir all performed at the town’s Halo Leisure Centre to a very appreciative crowd. One of the highlights of the show was seven-year-old soloist Tahlia Wright, who brought the house down with her singing. Tahlia explains, “I was a bit nervous to start with but once I started singing, I loved it!”

During their inaugural performance, the Show choir delivered songs from ‘Chicago’, The Sound of Music and ‘Joseph’; the Pop choir treated the audience to songs by Take That, A-ha and Van Morrison, while the Gospel and Soul choir brought the house down at the end of the concert with their a-capella version of ‘Rollin’ in the Deep’, made famous by Adele and Titanium. The event’s organiser Simon Whitmore says, “To raise £670 for the Bridgnorth Hospital League of Friends is really fantastic. It really is good to get together as a community and make music.”
