On Tuesday 10 June the Mayfair Community Choir performed in VOICES: Poetry, Prose and Song to commemorate the start of the First World War. They sang wartime songs to a full house and received great applause and many compliments. The evening also included readings of English, French and German poetry, newspaper cuttings, war correspondent reports and diary entries – some funny, most poignant.
The choir was started less than a year ago and has a membership of over 30 made up of library customers, church staff and congregation, Grosvenor Estate and people who live and work in the area as well as from further afield – a real Community Choir. Anyone interested in joining can attend their open evenings in September – Tuesdays at 6.30pm. More details from Mayfair Library.
