Once again Macapello attended the Community Choir Convention in Bristol in the fabulous acoustic and ambience of St. Georges, Brandon Hill, on April 2nd.
The Community Choir Convention is a day-long annual gathering of choirs from all over the South-West, where we share songs, learn new ones en masse and then perform them in a Big Sing, mingle with the other choirs – and sing one or two of our own Macapello songs to everybody else! It’s great fun and richly rewarding.
This year we sang four songs – ‘Well I Woke Up This Morning With My Mind Set On Freedom’, followed by ‘Your Children’, ‘Far Over The Misty Mountains Cold’ and finishing with ‘Famba Naye’, a nice and varied mix of songs – and we got a great response and warm applause as we came off stage!
Here we are performing to the assembled choirs, looking good!
and here are our brilliant basses doing themselves proud in ‘Far Over The Misty Mountains Cold’:
