Our Gallery (Carol Concert 2012)

Family Carol Concert, 15th December 2012

We did our annual concert at Holy Trinity Church this year, first time for us at this venue.

The venue presents a few difficulties, in squeezing about 50 singers into the choir stalls and altar area, and additionally some sound issues with voices being "lost" in the tower space above the choir stalls. So we made the brave decision to rotate the church pews for the audience space and set the choir along the north wall of the church area.

The pictures that follow are from just prior to, or after the concert:

Slightly closer view of the choir layout - you can see the curve of the layout and the chairs all the way back to the wall.

Just before 4 p.m. the last few audience arrive......

Audience arriving

By 5:50 p.m. our encore performed, the audience began to dissipate and the work of restoration began ...

Audience on their way home

At 6.30 p.m. (when this shot was taken) there were only a few bits left to clean up...pews and chairs already back.....Hopefully we didn't leave too much in the wrong place!

Final bits of cleaning up

Thanks to all the folks involved on the setup, ticketing, catering and cleaning crews...we couldn't have done this without you!
