On Saturday, 3rd November, the Riviera Singers were very happy to be part of a concert at Churston Church to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 and to remember in particular those servicemen within the parish who lost their lives in the Great War. The concert was a great success with a packed Church.
The concert was beautifully planned and very moving. The Riviera Singers performed a number of songs and members of Churston Church recited poignant poems of the period along with readings on how the servicemen, commemorated on plaques within the church, fell in battle.
The afternoon concluded with the Riviera Singers’ Musical Director, Margaret Johnstone, conducting the choir and audience in renditions of the famous First World War songs, It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, Keep the Home Fires Burning and Pack-up Your Troubles.
