On Saturday 6th September we held a special musical in a day at Annie's church, St Germain's in Edgbaston, Birmingham. 40 instrumentalists and 100 choir members responded to the invitation to come and take part, and we had a wonderful day together. Annie (celebrating her 20th anniversary at CMM) led the amazing orchestra, and Helen trained the choir assisted by Katie.

After a morning and early afternoon of rehearsals in separate rooms, the choir and orchestra combined with the CMM soloists Devon, Richard, Bill, Amy and Sarah for a run through before the audience arrived. We were delighted to be joined by a trio of Priests from the St Ives choir, who had come up for the day - they did an amazing job.

St Ives weren't the only group to have travelled a long distance - we had a group from Middlesbrough, a carload from Crowborough, a coach from St Helen's and a family from Barrow-in-Furness.

The performance was spectacular (and loud), with some great instrumental work and singing from the choir. Roger spoke and shared the gospel very clearly, concluding a wonderful day.
Thank you so much to all who took part, particularly to those who were so selfless helping with the bookstall and refreshments etc.

Don't forget the Derby CMM crowd who were there. They really enjoyed the day. We have just started to practice Angel Voicesready for spring time
It was a great day and a privilege to share with the CMM team who do such a great job. looking forward to them coming down to Camborne.
