New president for Choral Society

Story posted on

The longest serving member of Melksham Choral Society, Daphne Crossman, was welcomed as president at the society’s AGM in May.

Melksham Choral Society reports, “It was in 1952 that Daphne and her husband, then a young married couple, moved to Melksham.  Here, a friendly neighbour invited her along to a choir practice and she has remained a loyal member of the society ever since.  Daphne is still singing and has in recent years joined the ranks of the altos.

“Melksham Choral Society has been very fortunate in having Daphne as a member.  She has been secretary, committee member, and for many years had the most daunting task of all, that of being music librarian, and she is still smiling.  For the past few years she has been the society’s deputy-president and was honoured to be asked to take over the role of president.

“The end of the summer term is in sight when the society will finish their musical season with an evening of entertainment on the lighter side. Come and join them for this free entry event, and listen to musical medleys of ‘Rodgers and Hammerstein on Broadway’ and ‘My Fair Lady’, with Frank Sinatra’s ‘New York, New York’.  Put the date in your diary, Thursday 2nd July at 7.30pm in The Rachel Fowler Centre. There will be light refreshments to make the evening go with a swing.
