Pakefield Singers – Together in Harmony
With regret we are placing all performances and gatherings on hold until further notice.
You are welcome to follow us on Facebook for updates.
We wish you all good health
The choir has been busy during the lockdown and this is the second Zoom video we have produced with the help of Paul Johnson who stitched everything together. We chose Vivaldi’s Gloria as a contrast to Can’t Help Loving Dat Man (see below) and also because it was the last piece we sang together before the pandemic. We were delighted to be joined by Jim O’Toole and the string quartet who played on that occasion, and organist Tim Patient, all under the direction of our indefatigable conductor, Vetta Wise.
Pakefield Singers invite you to donate to The Access Trust, a local charity helping disadvantaged people reconnect with the community. https://www.accessct.org/
PLEASE ENJOY, SHARE AND DONATE TO OUR HOSPITAL!
Like other choirs, we had various exciting concerts cancelled. and we missed singing together and seeing each other at our regular rehearsals- so at our weekly sessions on Zoom we decided to try doing an “online” performance of one of our familiar pieces. This video was put together in the space of only a week or so, with the huge input of Paul Johnson. When you listen, do consider donating to the charity suggested by our own two workers on the frontline at James Paget University Hospital, Natalie and Annette:
supporting the caring and dedicated staff working on the frontline in the ICU unit at our local Hospital, The James Paget, Gorleston..
