MORLAND CHORISTERS CAMP 2012
Sunday 29th July - Sunday 5th August

MUSIC - GAMES - DRAMA
PRACTICE AND PERFORMANCE

In addition to all the learning and music practice came SPORTS DAY on Wednesday, full of fun and activity

Getting a good start is always to be advised ...

... despite the overcast and damp conditions that prevailed during the day


Who said ... 'I never thought it was going to be quite so strenuous!?'


However the wonderfully appetising meals helped to keep energy levels and spirits high!

But there was a lot more to the camp than just fun and games ....

... carefully planned rehearsals of the sacred music took part each morning in the parish church and ...

... as a result the choir sang evensong in Carlisle Cathedral (library image)
on the Friday evening at 5.30pm


One of the interesting activities at the camp was the introduction of CROQUET which was adopted just as enthusiastically as everything else

new skills combined with tense moments all resulted in an exciting final and maybe a new interest for the future

SATURDAY IN PENRITH METHODIST CHURCH

Following a successful rehearsal, from 7pm a full audience was treated to a concert to remember
Helen and John Lacy from Manchester said 'The concert this year was the best we have heard'

Wonderfully balanced choir performances encouraged long rounds of applause

and fine performances from the soloists provided interest and contrast to the choral works by the choir

Following a brief interval a Musical Drama featuring
Roald Dahl's
GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS
provided a great deal of fun for those on stage
and lots of entertainment for the appreciative audience

Donald Gilthorpe (concert director) and Oli Tarney (accompanist)
certainly inspired the singers to give of their very best
.

THE LAST DAY IN CAMP - SUNDAY

The traditional procession was blessed with good weather and the Bishop of Penrith

who gave an inspiring and animated sermon

AWARDS AND APPRECIATIONS

The award winning leaders took to the stage for a song

and award winning Team D were congratulated on gaining most points during the week


and following this came recognition of great affort and skill during the week

by teams and individuals


At 6.15pm it was time to prepare for the final evensong


with music by T T Noble, Haydn and concluding with Jerusalem by Blake/Parry T

Following what was acknowledged to have been an amazing week of musical activities, those who had travelled from near and far

prepared to return home enriched by the variety and quality of music

and fine friendships gained

by a week in musical Morland


This joyful group of choristers are bolting back to London after their enlightening musical experiences during the week
