Our late President, Mr. John Brian CROCKFORD(April 23, 2019)
We are sad to report that our president and founder member John Crockford passed away on Tuesday 23rd April 2019. Despite a long illness John hardly ever missed rehearsals or concerts and remained a dedicated member of the choir.
The picture below shows John (on the right) and our chairman Michael Usherwood at our annual Christmas get together in January.
He will be sadly missed by everyone associated with the choir. John's funeral was held at Christ Church, Belper at 11.30am on Wednesday, 8 May 2019. BelCanto took their part in the service and sang three numbers to a packed Congregation. Following his interment at Belper Cemetery we all partook of refreshment at Blackbrook Hall.
