Singing in Chepstow Library


Karl Daymond, local well known opera singer with Chepstow and Usk Singing Groups

Last evening Chepstow Library played host to Karl Daymond and the Chepstow and Usk Singing Groups, all dressed in Victorian costume, during the library’s Christmas Celebration Evening. Approximately 70 guests were treated to a selection of Christmas carols & songs including ‘White Christmas’ & Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’. One of the highlights of the evening was the group using sign language whilst singing ‘See Amid the Winters Snow’.

Readings included ‘The Gift of the Magi’ by O. Henry; ‘Pickwick Papers’ by Charles Dickens; ‘Politically Correct Santa’ by Harvey Ehrlich & ‘The Christmas Truce’ by Carol Ann Duffy.
