Ahead of the concert, a spokesperson for the choir said: "The idea of being in a room with like minded people who had gone through this journey was quite awe inspiring. We all understand each other. We had great help and encouragement from the get go from Dr Paul and from Seamus Leonard UCHG, our then music director. All you think about while you are there is the singing, nothing else matters at that time. As with all organisations people come and go and move on to other things but we have a core group of 16 members today, and plenty room for more."
