An invitation from the Mayor to sing in her chamber in the Town Hall was an event that we just couldn’t miss. We were invited by the Mayor – Councillor Cath Rowson – to attend so we practiced a few songs that we thought might go down well at this exciting event.
The ladies arrived bright and early on a wet and windy Saturday morning armed with their umbrellas and raincoats. We assembled in the chambers in readiness for the Mayor’s welcoming speech.
We sang two of our favourites – “59th Street Bridge Song” and “That’s What Friends Are For”. The audience clapped and obviously enjoyed our songs. We then went into the other room for a drink and to meet with people from other community groups whom the Mayor had invited.
We then sang two impromptu extra songs – “Boardwalk ” and “Syiahama”
The event went well and I know that all the ladies enjoyed entertaining everyone on that rainy day.
