Ruth entered our choir into the North Wales Choral Festival, which took place over the weekend of 5/6 Nov. Our section was 'Just for Fun' and would be on the Sunday morning.
There was a great turnout and we learnt we would be on 3rd (out of 7 entries). Our 'Just for Fun' songs were ... All you need is Love, Wade in the Water and Sosban Fach, conducted by Ruth and accompanied by Heather. They were 3 songs we'd learnt off by heart (no music allowed!) and in which we sang our hearts out.
We listened and cheered all the other entries and by the end of the session we felt we may not make the top 3 - our feelings were 4th at best.
After a break for the judges to consider their verdicts, the results were announced and we came a very respectable 3rd! We were all delighted.
Ruth & Sue H went on stage to collect our award - see piccie - to the woops and cheers of the rest of the choir.
A great day was had by all and to add icing to the cake, Ruth arranged a visit to Ireland for a weekend in the future with the Irish choir who won the category!
Here's to the next competition - bring it on!
