Caldicot Male Voice Choir was pleased to perform at the World Sepsis Day Dinner at the Park Plaza Hotel in Cardiff on Friday 13th September. The entertainment was in two parts of about 30 minutes each. Part one was at the drinks reception prior to the dinner and part 2 was between the main course and dessert servings. The Choir is well on course to raising its target of £5000 this year for the Sepsis UK Trust (Wales) and the invitation from the charity director Terence Canning was in recognition of the choir’s efforts. Choristers Anthony Griffiths and Grahame Morton passed over another £1500 on the night to Terence. Among the distinguished guests in the audience was the Lord Mayor of Cardiff, Daniel De’Ath who expressed his appreciation.
Opening with Men of Harlech, highlights of the evening included the choir’s presentations of Bohemian Rhapsody, California Dreamin’ and What would I do without my Music? Welsh offerings included Yfory, Anfonaf Angel and African Prayer. The Choir was conducted by Sian Hatton and Shirley-Anne James and accompanied by John Nicholson. The concert ended with a standing ovation following Cwm Rhondda.
Terence Canning, Director of The Sepsis UK Trust said that the Choir was amazing and thanked everyone for their support and efforts.
