Ladies choir

Led by musical director Geoff Hurd, and playing to a full house, the Glenfield Ladies Co-operative Choir gave a lively and enjoyable performance of known and not so well known songs, accompanied on the piano by Mary Starie.
Held on Saturday 18th April, at the Memorial Hall Glenfield, the decidedly romantic themed evening began with 'It was a Lover and his Lass', 'Bring him Home' and towards the end we heard 'Someone to Watch Over Me'.
Soloist Mr Brian Bradbury delighted the audience (mostly ladies!) by singing 'Serenade' from 'The Student Prince', and 'Girls were made to Love and Kiss', by Franz Lehar!
'Bill' from 'Showboat' and ' Hello Young Lovers' from 'The King and I' sung beautifully by soprano Chloe Spence, I'm sure brought tears to the eyes. The ladies had been warned to have hankies ready.
The varied nature of the British weather in Spring was explored with rousing verses of 'Didn't it Rain!', and 'Like a Rainbow' !
And there were lots more!
A lively rendering of 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy' brought the evening's entertainment to a close.
I must thank the busy ladies and gentlemen from the Leicester branch of Cancer Research UK who helped sell tickets, served drinks and manned the very successful raffle. And a very big thankyou to all of you who bought tickets and came along to hear the 'Voices in Spring.
Proceeds from this happy evening will be donated to Cancer Research UK and LOROS.
