March 2024


On Sunday 10th March some of the choir set off to London to see Karl Jenkins 80th Birthday concert at the Royal Albert Hall (RAH).


We left Syston at 8am and after a comfort break we arrived at the RAH at 11am.  We had some free time before the concert started at 3pm.  Some took the opportunity to go to the Science Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, meet up with family and friends, have a wet walk round Hyde Park or lunch in a local pub.


We met up again at 3pm to enjoy an amazing concert.  Karl Jenkins conducted The Armed Man - A Mass for Peace and other favourite pieces including Palladio, Adiemus and extracts from Sir Karl's new album - One World.  He was joined by the Philharmonia Orchestra and Crouch End Festival Chorus.


It was a brilliant experience, made even more special by the surroundings of the RAH.


We had a very wet journey back to Syston but were in the safe hands of Paul our driver from Paul Winsons Coaches.  I think we all agreed it was a very successful day.
