At the recent Sports and Fitness Fayre at the Choir Hall there was a stall, run by Lyn Gauntlett to promote the choir and its activities. After chatting to the nearby U3A stall, leaflets were handed out and interest was shown by John Barrow who was given advertising material.
On the following Monday, John turned up to listen to us and said he would be back on Thursday, which he did. He was so keen to join that he asked if he could take his first voice test so at half time he went into the back room with Stephen Berry and Shirley Anne James, warbled up and own the scales and emerged to the pronouncement that he was a second Bass.
John said to Lyn afterwards, quote ‘I can’t take the smile of my face, one of the best experiences of my life to be part of this choir. Who would have thought that representing the U3A at the Sports Fayre would lead to a potentially life changing experience?’. No need to go over the top John, but your enthusiasm is greatly appreciated and we’re sure you will be a major asset to the choir and we wish you a long and happy association with us.
