Surrey Harmony said a fond farewell to one of its dazzling front row members last night as she left for a new life in front of the risers. Jenny Savory, our erstwhile SHooter (Surrey Harmony Out of Towner) and more recently fully-fledged member, is off as she becomes the new Musical Director of Spinnaker Chorus, and we are so excited for her! Spinnaker is a sister chorus to Surrey Harmony, based just down the A3 in Portsmouth.
Naturally we couldn’t let her go quietly, so Jenny gave her arms a directorial test drive by leading Surrey Harmony through a performance of Elton John’s Can you feel the love tonight. And we will see her again in October, when she hops back on the front row to join us as a SHooter when the chorus goes to Houston to compete at the Sweet Adelines International Competition.
We’d like to wish Jenny and Spinnaker chorus the very best of luck…. we can’t wait to see them in action at the regional convention in May next year. You can find out more about Spinnaker at their website… www.spinnakerchorus.co.uk
