    On a warm summer evening in Halifax our recent concert was a very enjoyable experience for audience and choir alike. Opening with the rousing “Zadok The Priest” and closing with “Jerusalem”, - joined by the audience - the concert included pieces from Gershwin, Parry, Mendelson, Copland and many others. Excellent performances from the singers of Halifax Minster and James Bowstead on piano and organ made the evening complete. See our photo gallery here.
