And this year, just to drive the message home, we had two concerts sub-titled ‘A choral celebration of spring’. If you’ve been outside in the last few weeks – or considered going outside, looked out of the window and then thought better of it – you will have noticed that conditions in the UK have not been exactly spring-like.
But that has never held back La Nova Singers from our mission of performing uplifting choral music, and so it was that we returned to Ringwood Meeting House on 20th April for a concert that seemed to be enjoyed by all present.
The Meeting House is an unusual venue, but a lovely performance space.
Celia Cologne is no stranger to Ringwood audiences, having had a long career on the stage! For this concert she was not only accompanying us on piano, but provided expert advice to Anne T for her Noël Coward solo, ‘Please, Mrs Worthington!’. Steve Howard was on hand for flute accompaniment and page-turning.
