    Some good stuff on the programme then; and it's near enough Manchester to get back the same night. Hmmm.....:D

    If you're still considering going, I went to the Nottingham concert last night and would highly recommend tonight's Stoke concert. The programme was/ will be:

    Shine as the Light (Peter Graham)
    Comedy Overture (Ireland)
    Irish Tune from Co. Derry (Grainger)
    Concerto Grosso (Gregson)
    St Magnus (Downie)
    Toccata, O The Blessed Lord (Heaton)
    Dances and Arias (Gregson)

    plus some added extras.

    The Concerto Grosso featured soloists James Fountain, Jonathan Bates, Nicholas Birch and Christopher Jones.

    The concert was fantastic from top to bottom! :clap: Highlight for me was 'Shine As The Light' and 'St Magnus' - absolutely first class! The soloists were all great - especially Nick Birch, principal euph (and just happens to be in Crewe Co-op too!). A hard week's work that definately paid off! :clap: Sad to see the leavers go - very emotional for all concerned; the hymns had me in bits again... :frown:

    Absolutely fabulous concert. the standard of playing was most excellent throughout. It certainly grabbed Abigail's attention (plan succeeded!!!)

    It was also great to bump into a few friends i haven't seen in a long time.
