Photographed in the 1980s
This photograph was taken sometime in the late 1980s and would have been taken at one of our many concerts.The Brighton Orpheus Choir at that time was conducted by Patricia Harding who was also the senior music teacher at Varndean Girls.
Were always sold out
I am in the front row – 3rd from centre; the lady standing next to me – 4th from centre, is my best friend, Jane Maxwell. She and I were at Stanford Road Juniors, then at Varndean together and have remained friends ever since. The Choir used to put on three events a year, two with a full orchestra and soloists, and we were always sold out.
