It was billed as Pauline's special surprise party, and what a surprise it turned out to be when fourteen smartly dressed men walked into the hall to be part of my 60th birthday celebrations.
What followed was half an hour of wonderful entertainment by the group of barbershop singers, who were well deserving of the standing ovation they received. The audience of all ages were captivated and thoroughly enjoyed the lively presentation.
Thank you, Capital Chorus for making my birthday celebrations so special.
Pauline Hawkett, Bucks
Just a note to say thank you so much for the fantastic evening you gave us last Thursday. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive - both from staff and patients - particularly patients.
The sense of communal togetherness that the singing created between chorus and audience was remarkable - I always thought it would work, but didn't expect the experience to be quite so powerful for everyone.
