Spring Concert (May 2018)

Thanks go to David Bridges, his colleagues and the students from Taunton School for the amazing concert in Church on Friday 11 May.  The choir, individual singers and musicians performed an eclectic mix of music from Bruckner and Poulenc to Rodgers and Hammerstein and Carly Simon and many more.  There was even an arrangement by Nigel Wood based on the ‘The Lone Ranger’ theme tune from the 1950s Western TV series.  A wonderful first concert in our reordered Church.

The finale was a very suitable hymn for the choir and the audience to sing together which was written to dedicate a new pipe organ at another St John the Evangelist Church in Wingate Lancashire in 1861.  The pleasure felt by everyone in the Church, savouring the wonderful acoustics in Church was palpable.

This will certainly be the start of many more concerts in Church.
