An audience of over 320 was entertained in Bangor Academy by Donaghadee Male Voice Choir accompanied by Ivan Black.

The selection of songs was greatly appreciated by everyone and Ivan Black’s solo performances received rapturous applause.

Afterwards the President of Bangor Rotary Club, Bill Aiken, described the evening as a huge success. “The choir and Ivan were up to their usual high standard and it was obvious that everyone enjoyed themselves”, he said The evening was a perfect example of how Rotary works, members raising money for worthy causes and at the same time having a bit of fun”.

During the concert the Donaghadee Choir took the opportunity to celebrate a milestone for one of its members. Gibson McCann has been a member of the Choir for more than 35 years and its President North Down MP, Lady Sylvia Hermon presented him with a Service Recognition Plaque to mark his achievement.

Handing it over Lady Hermon commented that she was the only MP in the House of Commons that could boast of having a Choir of her own and to the amusement of all, particularly his fellow members, she enquired from Gibson what it was like to fall straight out of his pram into the Choir.
