Event:  St. Johns Church 150th Celebration Concert

The Choir and the Military Wives performed at the celebration of 150 Years of St. Johns Church, Warminster. The songs were interspersed with short stories and anecdotes from the past 150 years of the Church. Military Wives performed first with 6 songs; this was followed by the interval, during which nibbles and drinks were served and the Reverend Brett tried very hard to sell 2016 Church calendars!. Our Choir sang in the second half with 8 songs. Both choirs then joined for the final 3 songs. The choir enjoyed the concert and feedback was all positive.

Date:  19th December 2015

Event:  Christmas Busk

Location:  Warminster Three Horseshoes Mall

Our final concert of the year. Time to let the hair down, no stress and just enjoy singing carols for an hour in the local mall. We had competition though, at one end was the Lions Santa float, at the other end was the Salvation Army band. But a great time was had by all our members in this final fling of the year. There was even an impromptu singalong to one of the bands songs.
