Spring is sprung by Singers

Monifieth Singers completed their session with an excellent Spring Concert held last Sunday in St Rules before a much appreciative audience.

Put through their paces by musical director, Misia Paul, the choir provided a most enjoyable and varied programme, ably accompanied by Susan Jenkin on piano and Sheonagh Coutts, organ. Introductions and narrative was provided by Liz Pardoe.

The choir started triumphantly with the rousing chorus from the Haydn’s ‘Creation’, “The Heaven’s are Telling”, giving the audience a promise of what was to come.

And they certainly were not disappointed with the diverse range of numbers from spirituals such as ‘Nobody Knows The Trouble I See’ and ‘Deep River’ to ‘Les Miserables’, religious pieces and traditional Scottish classics including ‘The Isle Of Mull’.

There were solos from tenor George Mitchelson, Liz Pardoe and Susan Jenkin which covered a spectrum of fantastic favourites.

So ended another evening of excellent entertainment from the Monifieth Singers. The performance on the night reflects the many evenings of practice put in during the winter months, and also the care chosen with the programme to ensure that it provided enjoyment for all.

Thanks to all who helped were given by president George Mitchelson, who had provided closing remarks in his inimitable and witty manner and who invited guests to join with the choir in some après concert refreshments.
