Our autumn concert was a very special one, featuring the Military Wives Choir of Colchester, whose performance was particularly appropriate, being just two weeks before Remembrance Sunday and while many Mersea residents were commenting on the poignancy of the Strood soldiers.
Although a choir of about 20 had been expected, sickness and other difficulties resulted in just ten women singing in the concert which was held in West Mersea Parish Church on Saturday, October 26.
However the audience was not disappointed. With no microphones and just the accompaniment of a single pianist, they filled the church with a wonderful selection of musical favourites including several very impressive solo items.
Feedback from the audience was very positive with many requesting a return visit from the choir which has now been arranged for 2021.
