We had an enjoyable afternoon of singing music by Liszt, Gounod and more, with presentations about the musical background, and how Bach, Beethoven and other composers set standards and goalposts, even though we had to decamp to the church hall because it was much warmer there. There were over 40 attendees with many non choir members, which was wonderful.

A wonderful and entertaining evening was had by all. A good turn out for a Summer Concert which included a piece written by the accompanist Richard Wilkins which was premiered at the concert. He was extremely happy with the performance.

Pieces arranged by the Musical Director Philip Norman were also very well received, particularly with amusement the way he kept the choir holding one note on his piece Kalinka.

There was a full house for Questors Choir's celebration of 200 years of American music at St Martin's Church in West Acton. This Questors Choir Summer Concert coincided with the bicentenary of American President John Quincy Adams time living in Ealing. The programme included spiritualsthe first American classical works by John K Payne and Horatio W Parker, and then Jazz, musicals, country and of course rock'n roll. The audience would have known most of the music, but might not have been familiar with the earlier classic and religious pieces. Of course, good old John Quincy Adams would have loved them

The Choir sang: I feel pretty; Kyrie from Mass in D; Come where my love lies dreaming; Joshua fit the battle of Jericho ; My Lord! What a Morning;  Listen to the lambs; When I see an elephant fly; Sixteen tons; Hora Novissima; Ain’t misbehavin’; Are you lonesome tonight?; Jailhouse Rock. Questors ensemble offered the shapenote Anthem from Revelation, The Way We Were and Lipstick on Your Collar; and there were solo items from choir members. Pictures: Simon Bishop
