Last night, in the magnificence of the beautiful St James Church, we witnessed a true tour de force when the very gifted Jenny Collis-Smith presented the choirs of Audlem Voices and Crewe Male Voice Choir in a programme of heart stirring singing in sweet harmony.
The repertoire created by Jenny and the choristers ranged from the classic to the modern and a very full house gave exceedingly warm applause for a great event.
Jenny has announced her retirement as conductor of the Crewe Male Voice Choir after 11 years as their maestro and as one CMVC member said: "She has been the best ever and has truly taught us music".
This now annual event proves its popularity and next year's night is booked for 19th October. ADAS is very proud to put on such a lovely evening — proving yet again just what a musical jewel Audlem is.
