|The grand pudox match|
|The wonderful choir|
Unlike previous years at Lee Abbey where Paul has come and trained the choir, this time Paul came and played piano for the orchestra, and Helen put the choir through their paces. The orchestra were amazing - there were 6 violins, a viola, 4 cellos, 2 flutes, a trombone, a trumpet, a bass guitar, two acoustic guitars, a clarinet, an oboe, drums and the piano. One of the biggest orchestras we've had, and they made a wonderful sound.
|The enormous orchestra|
The final performance was wonderful - it was kicked off in style by an oboe quintet. Then we had some wonderful solos from a number of the guests, and some very dramatic narrations. There was standing room only for the audience, and a brilliant atmosphere.
