Spectrum launched its festive concert season at St Augustine's Christmas Tree Festival in Penarth on Saturday, contributing to a varied programme of live music throughout the weekend, which helped to raise more than £2,500 for charity.
The MD wore a slightly pained expression throughout, which we put down to his shiny new shoes (couldn't possibly be the quality of the choir's singing), and completed the ensemble by plucking a tenor and bass out of his musical maestro's hat (thanks for your glamorous vocal assistance Jakob and Ben).
Our first Christmas concert together was a special occasion not least because, after five years in rehearsal, the choir finally unleashed the wonderful ‘Christmas Medley’ by Mark Duthie upon an unsuspecting public …as the final notes of ‘White Christmas’ drifted away into the William Butterfield Grade I listed interior, it was practically snowing.
And for those who took up the Facebook ‘name that tune’ challenge, let me put you out of your misery right here.
