Dai was There – 1968

The first Annual Concert was performed in 1968 at Green Lane School, where the Choir now held their rehearsals. By now the Choir, still under the baton of Ralph Hodges, was accompanied by Mrs Edith Bourton-Tuckwell. The solo artist for the concert was Mrs Ann Richards, who had become a regular performer with the Choir. Also around this time light entertainment at concerts was provided by second tenor Ken Rowlands and Jan Castellari who was a local magician and illusionist. Miss Ann Ruggles, later to become Mrs Ann Sykes, also frequently appeared as a solo artist.
