Helen Swift conducted the choir as usual. The packed Church really made us feel welcome.

As well as a very reponsive audience, I think the football result helped. After a win in Euro 2016 it was amazing how Welsh the audience had become!

Soloist for the evening was Tavia Lewis. Her set covered songs from the shows as well as Schumann. Tavia was The Rotary Banbury Young Musician of the Year 2015.
