On Sunday evening the sounds of several hundred primary school choristers filled the hall at the Loddon Valley Leisure Centre. Proud parents and civic guests enjoyed the rousing singing of traditional Christmas carols and songs. The Berkshire Maestros Corelli Orchestra gave strong backing to the singers and excelled with their own musical treats.
For me the Christmas period truly begins as I hear the haunting music of Leroy’s Sleigh Ride. The Orchestra captured perfectly the coming and going of the sleigh with its jingling bells.
I wish to pass on my thanks and congratulations to all involved in a memorable evening. The choirs sang well. The orchestra played with spirit. The organisers got us in and got us out and provided a platform for a great event.
