The following are a selection of images from our recent concerts.
These give a flavour of the size of the choir and the space it occupies depending on availability of choir members for a particular event.  They also demonstrate the sorts of venues we have sung in and the variations in the informal and formal wear for the Choir depending on the occasion.
