Godmanchester woman in choir success
A GODMANCHESTER woman has sung her way to second place in a national carol competition – along with 69 other members of her choir.
JOYCE Jones, of The Causeway, entered the Brewers Fayre Carol Stars of 2011 with her choir, the Phoenix Chorus, and beat over 50 entries from around the UK to finish runners-up in the annual contest.
The choir performed a barbershop rendition of Once in Royal David’s City.
As part of the prize, the all-female group, which consists of members from all over the Eastern region, performed a selection of seasonal songs and carols at the Highwayman pub in St Neots on Thursday, December 8.
The 64-year-old, who has been with the choir for 16-years, said: “It was fantastic. It was a great opportunity to perform in front of different people and showcase our work.”
