Visit to Sweden 23-27 May 2014

31 members of the Malmesbury Singers and their conductor Iain Duffin and accompanist John Hughes had a fantastic visit to Västerås in Sweden over the late May Bank Holiday, visiting ABB Kören!

We had a varied concert including songs from around the British Isles (and a couple from the USA) and more or less repeated our concert from Tetbury twice more.  We sang in Fryxellska school in temperatures of over 25 degrees celsius – both with ABB choir and separately; we sang again in the church at Sätra Brunn, a place which houses an old and new spa.  

Much mirth and jollities took place with parties and barbecues. Our hosts took utmost care of us and we have made new friends and renewed old friendships, with a promise to continue our connections!
