Feast after famine

Posted on

South Devon Choir performed Handel’s Messiah on Saturday 11 December 2021at St Matthias Church, Babbacombe Road, Wellswood, Torquay. The concert was the first to be conducted by Simon Dunbavand and the first concert performed by the choir since the start of the pandemic.

We welcomed back our professional soloists, Catherine Hamilton, Rebecca Squire, John Hobbs and a well-known but new to us tenor, Mark Hounsell.

But a successful performance requires hard work and lots of practice and we are blessed with the musical ability and passion of our Director of Music, Simon Dunbavand, who rehearsed us for the autumn term and conducted the performance.
