The annual concert for the Denbigh Stroke Club is a constant engagement in the choir diary. Every effort made to include new items in the choir repertoire. The whole evening was as relaxing and comfortable as your favourite pair of slippers.
Altogether, the annual concert for the Denbigh Stroke Club proved entertaining and enjoyable. Musical Director, Arwyn Roberts, accompanist Nia Jones, the choir and choir soloists delivered a varied programme.
Compere Clwyd Wynne, in his inimitable style, tried his best to reassure the audience that he knew what was going on.
Denbigh Stroke Club Concert Programme
Another evening full of contemporary and traditional items. A relaxing, Noson Lawen, where choristers, where appropriate, let their hair down.
Choir and congregation started with the evergreen ‘O Come all ye Faithful.’ Then a poignant choir rendition of ‘Wyt ti’n Cofio’r Nos Nadolig?
Geraint Roberts provided the first solo with the touching Ryan Davies composition ‘Nadolig Pwy a Wyr?’
Peter Davies recited ‘The Battle of Hastings.’ One of Marriott Edgar’s famous humorous poems. All about ‘Arold with an eyeful of arrow.’
Versatile Peter then sang ‘On the Street Where You Live’ from ‘My Fair Lady’.
The Wynne Brothers, Gron and Clwyd, finally got going after a troubled start.
With Clwyd on guitar, their version of ‘Fields of Athenry’ was well received.
Gwynfor Evans gave us a flavour of the traditional Welsh Noson Lawen. A song about marriage to ‘Mari’ and all her farming stock.
Furthermore, Gwyn Williams gave us an arresting performance of ‘The Laughing Policeman’. The audience also laughed until they cried.
Finally, the choir sang Coedmor, Calon Lan and finished with the popular American Trilogy.
Denbigh Stroke Club Presentations
In conclusion, votes of thanks and presentations delivered. And graciously accepted.
Also, raffle prizes claimed with relish. An appreciation of an early Christmas present.
Overall, a well-formed and well-filled evening. Just like the perfect mince pies served for refreshments.
Moreover, this event is always appreciated and enjoyed by both the choir and the Denbigh Stroke Club audience.
All in all, a sparkling evening – see you next year!
