“MUSICAL EXTRAVAGANZA DELIGHTS THE CROWDS”                                                      

“St.Katharine’s Church was packed with an appreciative audience last Saturday for a memorable opening gala concert of the 9th Milford Haven Music Festival.   The John S.Davies Singers with the eminent Huw Tregelles Williams at the organ, provided rich promise of a successful festival with a powerful performance.  The choir was in fine voice, John S Davies moulding and shaping the impressive dynamics with expressive hands,

The second half comprised a varied seletion of 10 choruses.  Soloists Jessica Cale (soprano), Samantha Price (mezzo soprano) and Jenny Pearson (contralto) performed flawlessly and the ensemble was given a standing ovation”.
