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
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
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
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
by teams and individuals
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
