Proms 2022

On Saturday we joined forces with the Torbay Police and Community Choir to present a ‘Last Night of the Proms’ style event at Central Church in Torquay. The audience were fantastic and were motivated to join in by the superb Dave Easton from Shiphay Amateur Dramatic Society who had everyone ‘rolling in the aisles’ with his funny antics. Singing was as good as in the Albert Hall from the unofficial Jubilee Anthem ‘Sweet Caroline’ to t he more traditional ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘Land of Hope and Glory’. Fantasia on British Sea Songs gave the opportunity for hornpipes, and flag waving and our wonderful singer in residence, Theresa Moorin, inspired everyone to sing heartily in Rule Britannia. The Choir were in fine voice and finished with a rousing rendition of Widecombe Fair. We were also treated to Sally singing songs from Mary Poppins with Theresa. As a bonus, £540 was raised for the church roof appeal. If you missed this year’s event, we are hoping to do another proms next year so keep looking on the website as we update. Pictured are Barbara (one of our most loyal supporters and friend), our percussion section (Shirley and Roger) who went above and beyond to get into that proms spirit and the wonderful Sally.
