Our concert at the lovely church of St Peter's, Little Budworth on Sturday 29th April was a
resounding success. The curved ceiling lent itself to superb acoustics that enhanced our singing.

Some of the audience commented on the great harmonies, and the fact that the choir were telling the story
of the songs. One of our basses, Tim, serenaded us with two of Elvis's hits.

The concert raised £500 for church funds, and was enjoyed by all.

We were at the Winnington Recreation Club on Saturday 11th February for another rotary club oap dinner.
The pensioners enjoyed our singing, which included some new songs. One of our basses, Tim lead the singing for a couple of audience participation songs. The concert went very well, and the new songs were well received.

News and Concert Reports of the Bostock Singers
The concert on Saturday 17th June at 7.30 at St Lawrence's Church, Frodsham went very well.

The concert was in aid of Open Hearts and Minds, an incredibly worthwhile charity. There is serious poverty in this part of Kenya, but this school provides children with an education they would not be able to receive otherwise, along with school uniform, books, stationery, and two meals a day.

Vim Jesudason provided two songs in each half with information of the history of the charity intersperced throughout the concert. And, of course, The Bostock Singers sang - the entire concert without music for the first time!

Ther was no charge for tickets but donations on the evening came to in excess of £790.

Our singing for this year is now at an end. The choir would like to thank our talented musical director, Nicola Howbrigg for her patience in developing us into better singers, and special thanks must go to Emily Peak who has taken over from Peter Drew as our main accompanist.
We thank Peter, who has accompanied from our formation in 2009 and played at his last concert at Capesthorne this year.

We ended the Christmas period of carol singing with the last concert of the year for the Mid Cheshire Ladies Club at the Cottons Hotel in Knutsford on Wednesday, 13th December.
The choir may have been slightly depleted in numbers, but produced an amazing sound.
The concert was very much appreciated by all present - a perfect end to their Christmas meal.

Our Christmas concert on Tuesday 12th December at St John’s Parish Church in Hartford, was, in our musical directors Nicola Howbrigg’s words, “One of the best concerts we have done”, a feeling reflected by the enthusiastic and extremely complementary audience.
Mixed with the usual carols were some little twists on old ones, and some new Christmas songs that were very well received.
Thanks go to our readers and our two our sopranos Helen Kirsop and Carolynne Riley, and to tenor Ian Bradley and bass Dave Lee who entertained us with their respective duets.

The Harford Victorian Fair was the venue for the Bostock Singers on 2nd December.
We sang for 30 minutes outside the church entrance, and later at the church hall entrance. Despite the rain, we still had a few people braving the weather to watch and listen to us.
The fair had nearly 2,000 visitors to the event and raised a significant amount of money for their three nominated charities.

Saturday November 25th was the date of this years Christmas at Capesthorne, and the Bostock Singers were again in attendance at their favourite singing location.
As in previous years, we sang throughout the afternoon in the drawing room, alternating with a choir from the Grange School in Hartford.
The choir all enjoyed the singing, and many lovely compliments were received from the audiences throughout the afternoon.

St John the Evangalist church, Over, Winsford on Tuesday 11th July.

The concert was dedicated to the memory of Anne Cannon, an alto with the choir who passed away recently. We will miss here.
Admission was free of charge, but donations for Annes charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, came to over £500. A big thanks to choir and audience who donated.
Once again, the choir sang without music, and sang really well, with some of the audience almost moved to tears!
