Our penultimate performance of this year was a short set at the Alice Cross Funday, on the Den. Our song list rehearsed, everyone confident and ready to sing… and then the breeze whipped up. As a result, some fumbling of musical scores ensued, and our accompanist and leader for the day, with the aid of a choir member holding the pages as much as turning them, thankfully managed to follow the score! ‘Whistle down the Wind’, one of our chosen pieces, was certainly very apt!
Our audience was appreciative, and we sang a variety of accompanied and a cappella songs. This included, for its first time in public, the Everly Brothers’ classic, ’All I have to do is Dream’.
Below is a note of thanks received from the manager of the Alice Cross Centre:
Dear Teignmouth Sings
Thank you so much for your inspiring performance on Saturday. You brought our wonderful day to a wonderful close and we are very grateful.
You helped us to raise £1800 on the day, which will be used to help cover running costs for the Alice Cross Centre.
Many thanks for all the good work you do helping organisations like ours to raise funds.
