BelCanto entertains at Golden Wedding Celebrations(May 25, 2011)
BelCanto enjoyed a lovely evening with friends at St. Anne's Church, Ambergate to celebrate the Golden Wedding Anniversary of Yvonne and Cyril Wilkes. The evening began with a short service during which Yvonne and Cyril renewed their marriage vows and received the blessing of the Vicar in Charge. The Choir then performed items from its repertoire with solos from Neil ("To Make You Feel My Love") and Sid ("Anthem" from Chess) plus a monologue from Frank entitled "Sam's Goat". The Choir also presented a bouquet and performed a special number as a surprise to Yvonne "Lady in Red".
We are pleased to have received the following message from Yvonne and Cyril:
To our dear friends of BelCanto - We cannot thank you enough for sharing your time and talent with us on our special celebration. It is going to be a very special memory for us of our fifty years together. With our love and God's Blessings always, Cyril and Yvonne.
