Successful seminar

Not even the wild squalls battering Cornwall could put off Elgar lovers on Saturday, 8th February. More than 130 people put their hoods up and windscreen wipers on and headed to Truro School Chapel to attend the Kingdom seminar and singing workshop that had been organised jointly by Truro Choral Society and Three Spires Singers. “I enjoyed it and learned a lot,” said one audience member who had travelled some way across the county to get there. Huge thanks go to the engaging speakers, the excellent soloists and of course the organisers and their helpers from both choirs for making it such a success – and also to everyone who brought cake and other treats. In all, an extremely enjoyable event.
