    We had a fabulous and joyous Christmas concert for family and friends on Saturday 4 December. Our first set included 5 new songs, most of which we learned in our productive Zoom sessions and then polished when we finally got back together face-to-face. And then we had a very enjoyable set of Christmas favourites.

    Our wonderful concert is on our
    YouTube channel - enjoy our songs!

    From all the Cyrenes to all of you, we wish you a very Merry Christmas to everyone! We look forward to a wonderful harmonious year in 2022!

    Why sing? Because there are many benefits of singing in a choir - physical, psychological and social. The Cyrenes say that singing is part of the joy and well-being of life. And there is an increasing amount of research that agrees with us!
