We had a fabulous day on Saturday 14th March in Bognor at the Bersted Arts music festival Choirfest. This is a weekend event with musically diverse choirs performing both days. On Saturday three choirs were there, Bersted Community Choir, Little Lyrics and Spinnaker. We had so much fun during rehearsals which began with a mass vocal warm up lead by Spinnakerette, Liz Waddon, who soon got us all giggling singing rounds about sharks and then dogs!
In the evening we all performed two sets of four songs to a wonderfully receptive audience who had purchased tickets for the show. Our sets included many of our best loved repertoire pieces, Something inside so strong, Anthem, Come in from the rain, to name just three.
We really enjoyed listening to the other two choirs who each had their own style. Bersted Community Choir is a mix of male and female singers from the local community and Little Lyrics, a small group of youngsters who formed whilst at primary school and have continued to sing together since.
It was a pleasure to be part of this delightful singing event especially at this moment in time when everything is a little crazy in the world, thank goodness music and singing are still able to bring so much happiness.
Thank you for having us Bersted and congratulations to your team for a brilliant event 💜🥰👏
