Come and sing Vivaldi
On Saturday 23rd September 2023, the beautiful church of St. John the Baptist hosted a collection of enthusiastic and talented singers gathered to sing Vivaldi's Gloria. Bathed in autumn sunshine, the picturesque village of Berkswell welcomed 62 people from as far afield as Northampton, Manchester, Wolverhampton and Oxford as well those local to the area to the inaugural 'come and sing' event. Director of Music, Kevin Stannard, guided the newly formed choir through an afternoon of rehearsal, crafting moments of beauty and joy. Stephen Perrins accompanied the choir superbly on the organ and a guest appearance by talented flautist Christ Foster was an absolute delight.
