Today’s our 5th Twitter anniversary and we’ve just clocked up 500 followers! Highlights of this time included tours of Poland and China, and performing Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis. Next month we’re off to Leeds to sing Britten’s War Requiem with @LFChorus, & @BBCPhilharmonic!

@LFChorus raising the roof of @LeedsStJohns for @LightNightLeeds this evening! Join us for their next performance at 8.45pm #artinthedark #LightNightLeeds2018

Feeling quite emotional after a wonderful evening singing with @LFChorus at #lightnightleeds. Thank you to these excellent women and @SJMartin02 for coming & supporting, & to the brilliant @R_becca_Taylor for conducting us! ❤️💪

@LFChorus @LightNightLeeds You all sounded absolutely incredible in the church 🎶

The finale of our suffragette anthems. We had a great time singing them @LightNightLeeds
