Woodside celebrates diamond jubilee
For 60 years, the Woodside Choir, said to be the oldest secular choir in Guyana and the Caribbean, has been constantly and consistently providing high quality of several genres of singing, including classical, folk, light classical, pop songs, songs of American and English composers, music from shows, hymns and national songs, in a variety of environments.
Recipient of the Medal of Service National Award, the choir celebrates its diamond jubilee this year with a series of events that has already started. In April, the Stainer’s Crucifixion was performed twice – at Bedford Methodist on the 4th and again at Christ Church on the 6th. Tomorrow at 5 pm, a Thanksgiving Commemoration Service will be held at Christ Church, Waterloo Street.
