Maghull Methodist Church where the British Methodist Youth Choir (BMYC) Performed on the 6th February 2010

The British Methodist Youth Choir performed their first concert of the year at Maghull Methodist Church in Liverpool on the 6th of February 2010.

This was the first time the choir has performed so early in the year, in an attempt to spread the concerts out more, over the year. This was also the first time the administrator has tried to film them in concert but more about that later.

After the choir had descended on Maghull from all corners of the country on the Friday night and had a good night sleep at their hosts, Saturday morning started off with a clear blue sky and the choir celebrated two birthdays with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday and a very large cake! (Cake is a core part of been in the choir!)

 

Then as the sea mist rolled in for a very mysterious atmosphere the morning rehearsal began in earnest until a very tasty lunch provided by the church.Big Birthday cake at Maghull for the first BMYC concert weekend of the year 2010

The choir then went onto to try and break the record for the quickest AGM, and though it was hotly debated, probably did not finish as quick as last year's in Aberystwyth. Stephen Burgess was elected in officially as the new Assistant Musical Director of the choir taking over from Mark Rowland who left last year after the tour of Cornwall.The BMYC choir rehearsing for the concert

The choir also elected for the first time an honorary President David Walton, who will help the choir in raising its profile in the wider British Methodist Church.

A lot of time was spent discussing the 2010 Taster Weekend, at which the choir will also be performing on the Sunday Morning worship show on Radio 4. If you would like to join us for a weekend of relaxed rehearsal and an opportunity to meet the choir drop us a line here.

To break the rehearsal in the afternoon the choir when off to visit Antony Gormley's Another Place, and though it was still very misty and we couldn't see most of the statues, the mist added another layer of mystery.

The choir performed another excellent concert with numbers such as the Lennon and McCarthy Medley, Blessed! and The King of Love.

But for the first time an attempt was made to film a little part of the concert. This was just an experiment and wasn't done with the best of equipment but it didn't turn out all that bad, so after running it by the members of the choir you can now see it here for your viewing pleasure:

I hope you enjoy it and feel free to vote for it or leave comments if you would like to.

Sunday Morning the choir travelled to Old Roan Methodist Church in Aintree to take part in their joint morning service with the Baptist Church which shares the premises. Where the choir provided the Introit, Anthem and Blessing, which included the ever energetic "The Right Hand of God" before having a very nice lunch and heading their separate ways before the next concert in April at Yarm Methodist Church on the 24th April.

Many thanks to everyone at Maghull and Old Roan Methodist Churches for an enjoyable weekend and see everyone again in Yarm!
