The Cantamus Girls Choir is a based in Mansfield and consists of approximately forty girls aged between thirteen and nineteen. The Choir was founded by Pamela Cook in 1968. A junior choir formed in 1992 for girls aged 9, who could then graduate in to the senior choir.
President Gloria had a dream that was realised on Fridat 31 March, to hear Cantamus sing to members of Inner Wheel. Whilst it is not possible to truly capture the magic of the evening, the following images should give you an idea of how beautiful the girls were; and how enchanting they were to listen to.
After singing amongst the audience the girls formed in to two groups to sing individual group pieces, before taking a short interval.
During the internval Gloria told the audience a little about her chosen charity and what it meant to raise funds for the NSPCC, School Service. The raffel was drawn before the evenings entertainment resumed.
The girls sang a range of songs from My Fair Lady and used home made hat props to re-enact the scene from the races.
The Choir performed brilliantly and the audience were not disappointed. Gloria presented the girls with a donation, as the Cantamus Choir is a registered charity. John Fretwell then thanks Inner Wheel for a wonderful evening and for Gloria for having the dream to make it happen.
John spoke of how wonderful the Warsop Inner Wheel club is and how well it is thriving with around 45 members. A stunning flower arrangement made by Sue from the Club, adorned the stage throughout the evening. John then held a short auction for the flowers. The winning bid was from Martin, Gloria’s husband, totally adorably; Gloria we think he’s a keeper.
