Some Sad News
Just before we departed from Dubai, The Choir heard the sad news that Annie Humpreys, the mother of our Conductor Emeritus Alwyn, had passed away. Alwyn’s wife, our accompanist Joy will be returning to the UK this week. The Choir extends our sympathy to Alwyn, Joy and family.
True to her outstanding commitment, Joy intends to rejoin us later in the tour. In the meantime we are fortunate in having such a strong and talented musical team with us. Jan Ball our organist and Jo Scullin, who along with Sally Tarlton will be taking on the accompanist role when Joy steps down in June, will cover during Joy’s absence.
