Come And Sing – the sound of success!


Members of the Deo Gratias and University of Chester choir, together with some of the orchestra and conductor, Vicki Bulgin.


The University of Chester Alumni Association and staff from the Alumni and Development Office recently hosted a musical event at All Saints’ Church in Hoole, Chester. 

Alumni, staff, students and the local community were all welcomed and the Church was full for the excellent performances of Handel’s Messiah.  Music was provided by the University of Chester Orchestra and the conductor was Vicki Bulgin, Director of Music at the University.  Guests were invited to sing, and were guided by two choirs: Deo Gratias and University of Chester Choir.  The soloists were: Suyeong Jang – Soprano; Francis Hill - Counter-Tenor; Seumas Begg - Tenor   and Thomas Hopkinson - Bass.

Several members of the Alumni Association recalled how musicals and choirs were a very important part of life at the then Chester College – even competing at the International Eisteddfod.  They wanted to bring this essence of their happy memories back for others to enjoy. 

During the evening, refreshments were served and participants had the opportunity to get to know each other.
