CARTMEL VERDI: Thank you for a splendid day's singing. Just a thought, for next time: we're not all familiar with Cartmel. It would be helpful to give a few more clues for people arriving: the postcode of the school hall, a note that the school hall is not in the school building, perhaps a verbal description ("coming into the village from the Grange direction, the car park entrance is on the right just after the "school" roadsign"): either in the initial leaflet, or printed on the receipt sent out. The same applies for any other venues: a small amount of extra work by one person at the stage of writing the leaflet can save a lot of research or confusion for many people trying to find the venue!
And a comment on the website: I've tried clicking on "Levens Choir Blog" as instructed, but nothing happened. I wonder whether this reply form will work?
Many thanks for your comments, which I will certainly pass on.
As you see, your input did work, though I'm still a bit mystified myself as to how this feedback facility is supposed to operate!

Just to say thank you for a wonderful and memorable performance of Britten's work on Friday night at STK. I am sure Britten would have been delighted with the standard you set and must be the result of considerable hard work, practice and undoubted talent. The soloists were particularly impressive throughout and brought tears to my daughter's eyes; she is now a Britten convert! The cello sonatas and piano accompaniment were executed with panache and style and complimented the choral works admirably. It was an inspired decision to interweave them, both in the Britten and Schumann sections. It worked extremely well.
I have listened to and attended a number of Britten live performances (including operas) in this anniversary year and this ranks amongst the best. Well done.
Congratulations on your 40th anniversary. I was a member of the choir for a few years in the late 80's and loved it. It's great to see you still going strong.
