Each summer approximately a third of our 160 members form a holiday choir for a weekend of music away from Plymouth. This year our destination was Liverpool. It turned out to be an immensely enjoyable, rewarding and impressive trip.
The venues for our two performances were very different. The first was inspired by our conductor, Christopher Fletcher, who began his musical education at the Moravian school in Fulneck, West Yorkshire. Our visit to Liverpool presented the opportunity to take the choir to another Moravian Church in nearby Fairfield. This lovely, intimate place of worship (with fine acoustics) was one of the original 18C settlement buildings which included a college and housing for church members, all still in use today. The site is bordered by the Ashton Canal. (Click each image to enlarge)
