On Saturday March 7th 2015, on a gloriously sunny day, several members of the Blackdown Community Choir travelled to Bradford on Avon to share walks and songs with Trowbridge-based community choir Sounding It Out whose leader is Candy Verney. Both Candy and Caroline Rigby (Blackdown Community Choir leader) taught and led songs throughout the day. Bradford on Avon was a perfect backdrop to the day with its yellow Bath stone buildings built in tiers overlooking the town.
Everyone felt that the day had been a great success and that we had shared the common interest of singing. It was clear that music really does bring people closer together. Blackdown Community Choir has extended an invitation to Sounding It Out to come to Wellington and they have duly accepted. This is to be arranged for later in the year.
