Glorious sunny Saturday 15th August saw 58 choristers, Musical Director Siân Hatton and accompanist John Nicholson make the journey to sing at the wedding of Joanne Hunt to John Sabin at midday at St Mary’s Church, Magor. We probably outnumbered the wedding guests but what a fabulous turn out.
The choir packed themselves into the pews, side on to the knave to entertain incoming guests with renditions of traditional wedding songs such as You Raise Me up, Can’t Help Falling in Love, Somewhere Out There and She made famous by Charles Aznavour. While the register was being signed, the choir also sang ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight’ from the Lion King in which Siân sang the solo part.
It was also a special day for top tenor John Searle who made his debut in the choir at the wedding although he will have to wait for the Gala on September 5th to make his official concert debut performance. It was also the debut wedding performance for Harry Giblin, Rob Baldwin, Liam Evans and Sam Atkins. Well done all and thanks to all the choristers and musical team who came to make it an extra special occasion for the bride, groom and guests.
