It was a huge privilege to host the Forest Philharmonic and Waltham Forest Community Choir on Saturday 19th September as part of Stowfest.
During the first part of the evening different sections of the Philharmonic played a wide range of classical pieces including Beethoven and Holst.
After the interval, the Waltham Forest Community Choir sang a wide repertoire of songs from Vivaldi to Labi Siffre.
It was wonderful to have Gnome House full of such beautiful music. We hope it won’t be long before both the Philharmonic and Choir return!
Waltham Forest Community Choir was set up in 2010 and has a membership of 45 friendly, amateur singers. The Choir regularly take part in concerts, performances and events throughout Waltham Forest.
