We recently held the island’s first Choir Festival at St James. Featuring no less than 25 local choirs, choristers joined together to raise the roof of St James with a variety of choral music. From Bach to Bernstein, Cole Porter to Snow Patrol there was no shortage of music to suit all tastes. It is hoped that the festival will become a biennial event, but for now Festival Director Kate Swann is taking a well-deserved break. Thank you to Kate for making this fabulous event a reality.
