‘Summer time and the livin is easy’ but not for local community choir Frodsham Sings!
The group has had a very busy summer with many appearances including Northwich Festival of Arts in Baron’s Square , performing on the Danny Steamship and at the Motor Show at the community centre where a couple of singing dogs provided
extra harmonies in two of the numbers! And of course, a day out for the Choir when they visited the world renowned Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.
One of the largest events they appeared at was the Frodsham Festival in The Park in July.
The event was organised by Frodsham Rotary Club. This is becoming an annual fixture for the choir; when several hundred people had a great afternoon in the Park.
The choir, resplendent in their cobalt blue, white, silver and black dress code attracted a large crowd, young and old.
Under a very hot sun they sang their hearts out and had them rockin’ in the aisles ‘to Simply the Best, Don’t leave me this way’ as well as Elbow’s ‘One Day like This’ and one of their favourite back catalogue songs,
Toto’s ‘Africa’, plus many others.
Frodsham Sings Community choir also has regular social events for it’s members, one of which was The International Eisteddfod at Llangollen on Saturday 6th July.
The event was truly inspirational, giving members the opportunity to hear a range of mixed, female and male choirs from round the world.
The main event took place in a magnificent pavilion with lighting and floral displays, whilst other events, including community choirs takes place on the Fringe.
So discussion is now taking place about the possible entry of Frodsham Sings next year as part of the Fringe. This was a memorable day of song including those members sang on the bus on their way home to Frodsham!
