Here at Capital Chorus 'tis the season to sing, and we've been having a lot of fun doing it too.
On Saturday, December 7th we were delighted to be invited to entertain crowds of shoppers and sightseers at the excellent St James' Christmas Market close to Piccadilly Circus. There is a spirit abroad at this time of year, something in the air which makes people more willing to smile, greet one another and stop to enjoy a festive song or two. We were all caught up in it as we performed carols and all the festive favourites we've been practising since October. We can promise that it wasn't just the very pleasant and rather potent mulled wine that brought it all on.
Then on Sunday the 8th, another treat. Kingsdown Methodist Church in West Ealing, which for many years has generously hosted our rehearsals, celebrated its Diamond Anniversary, and we were very happy to provide a few songs at the lunch which followed their celebratory service.
On Monday, December 16th we were delighted to join collectors from the charity Crisis as we entertained the crowds with a little Christmas magic during the rush-hour at Paddington Station. Thanks to all those who heard us and donated some money to provide food and shelter for homeless people this Christmas. It was lovely to see so many smiling faces, and we'd like to wish a very Happy Christmas to all.
