Up and Running!
Well, not literally, but at last, after 19 long months, Hart Male Voice Choir sang to a live audience once again, and what a joy it was! The venue was one of our very favourite places to sing, St Peter’s Church in Wrecclesham, a lovely church with its equally lovely and very enthusiastic vicar, Rev. Jacqueline Drake-Smith. As many audience members as Covid 19 safety would allow greeted the choir with the warmth and appreciation we have come to expect from the people of this charming village.
The choir sang a full and varied repertoire, interspersed by solos from Mike Morgan singing the beautiful Welsh ballad Ellen Fwyn and by Kevin Jacot playing Ladies in Lavender on the violin. Several other choristers provided solos within pieces, giving the audience a varied and interesting collection of music to listen to.
The evening was over far too soon, but the smiles on the faces of people as they left was reward enough for all the choristers to go home happy!
With the great majority of the choir now triple jabbed, we have taken on more concerts before the end of the year, beginning on Saturday November 20th at St Peter and St Paul Church in Godalming, a new venue for us and another exiting evening in the offing! We follow this on Saturday December 11th with a return to the Garrison Church in Aldershot to help the Army Benevolent Fund in their charitable efforts.
Then on Wednesday December 15th, at All Saints Church in our spiritual home of Odiham, we will present our own Christmas Concert, with a mixture of general and Christmas music that will hopefully put all in the mood for the festive season!

To all our friends and supporters – We wish you a very merry Christmas!
