The Telfordaires and Severn Harmony are delighted to share our musical New Years’ Greeting. Both choruses should have spent the year singing at events around Shropshire and beyond, so instead we have collaborated on a recording project so we can reach out and remind everyone how much we value the opportunities you give us to share our joy in music.

'The Parting Glass' is a traditional song associated with the turning of the year, and we bring it to you in a brand new arrangement, with the hope that we will be able to sing it for you live once again in 2021.

The two choruses have enjoyed workshopping and performing together over the years, and this collaboration gave us the opportunity to reconnect and spend time with musical friends. We held three joint virtual rehearsals during October and November, at which we enjoyed each other’s company as well as working on the song.

The Telfordaires continue to meet virtually despite all the obstacles of the past year, and will be delighted to welcome new members in the New Year. We offer the opportunity to learn new skills and make new friends, and if you would like a new challenge for 2021, you won’t find a more supportive and encouraging group of people to embark on it with.
