At this week's rehearsal we celebrated Alan Eost's 30th anniversary with Sheffield Oratorio Chorus.

Chair Lydia Fielder Lord paid tribute to Alan's commitment to the Chorus, remembering high points over the past decade, before presenting him with an anniversary gift and inviting him to cut his anniversary cake. Alan noted that it has been a great privilege to have spent 30 years as conductor and, latterly, Musical Director for the Chorus.
