Last Saturday evening many a festive tune was being sung by some fine voices whether in the guise of the popular Bersted Boys or from the members of the newly-formed Bersted Community Choir at Boxgrove Village Hall.
A packed house listened to the Trio – James Etheridge, Michael Gattrell and Will Hackett – sing solo, duet or as a trio and harmonise old tunes, new tunes and of course the classics. Their repertoire was vast highlights being a Winter Wonderland Medley, Drummer Boy, Perfect Year and Peace on Earth. They also gave the audience a surprise with a twist on The Twelve Days of Christmas all under the musical direction of Brett Wellcome.
The choir – who now has a core of about 30 members - had two sets one in each half most notably Happy, Dream A Little Dream and Away In a Manager led with precision by Choir leader Sue White.
The delivery of the evening by Bersted Arts gave the audience what they wanted, entertainment with light hearted interaction, they have grown in reputation in the last year and will continue to do so.
Don’t miss out on their next concert in March in Horsham. www.berstedarts.com.
