Goodbye to Pippa

choir at Hellens 23

The Ross Penyard Singers marked the end of an era with a memorable day out at the historic Hellens Manor House in Much Marcle on 16th August. The event was particularly poignant as it was the last time the choir was to be conducted by Pippa Wright, our Musical Director for the past 18 months. To show our appreciation, Pippa was gifted a stunning glass bowl crafted by Nina Oakman of Oakwoman Glass (Nina is one of our Tenor singers)

The day was filled with activities, starting with an intriguing tour of Hellens Manor House, a structure with foundations from the 12th century, though much of its current architecture hails from the Tudor, Jacobean, and Georgian eras. Following the tour, the choir enjoyed a delightful lunch in the Great Barn, courtesy of the Hellens tea room. The day ended in a heartwarming singing session where the choir performed some favourite songs.
