The Devizes Rotary SuperChoir Concert went ahead as planned earlier this month. The Rotary Team, together with Artistic Director Carol Berry and Technical Director Chris Berry, spent the morning setting up the hall so that everything was ready for the choirs when they arrived in the early afternoon.

After tea it was suddently time for the performance, and what a performance it was as the children sang their hearts out to the 8 songs featured in the first part of the show.
The last song before the break was Peace will Come by Tom Paxton, and some of the children got an opportunity to explain to an enraptured audience what they believe the meaning of ‘peace’ is:

Well done to all involved.

Below are some examples of written comments that we’ve received.
I very much enjoyed last night, listening to everyone else’s stories. It clearly gives you a lot of pleasure working in the community with such a wide and varied collection of organisations.”
