St.Mary’s Church was once again the venue for the Finale Concert of this year’s Eastwood Arts Festival last Saturday . It has now become traditional for the Eastwood Collieries Male Voice Choir to bring the annual Festival to a close and this year the local choir were joined by the Humberston Singers,a mixed choir from over the border in Lincolnshire.
The evening was a tremendous success with a capacity audience who enjoyed a wide variety of musical items, including songs from the shows, religious items, spirituals and a number of modern pieces from both choirs.
The Humberston Singers were led by Richard Bradley and accompanied by Esther Peterson on the piano.
The Eastwood Choir were under the baton of its Principal Conductor, Liz Moulder and ably assisted by its Principal Accompanist Ian Morton.
The evening was brought to a rousing conclusion with both choirs and the audience joining forces to sing I vow to thee my Country and Jerusalem.
