Felling Male Voice Choir certainly knew how to attract both the top UK and International artists to their Annual Concerts. 1973 was no exception!
They had secured Anne Collins, who came from Sacriston in County Durham and was a soloist with Sadler’s Wells Opera Company. A cultured international flavour was gained when they secured the services of the brilliant Brazilian guitarist, Turibio Santos.
On the afternoon of the concert, Turibio went along to meet the Northumbrian Pipers at Sallyport Tower in Newcastle. They were in for a treat because he suddenly whipped out his guitar and gave an impromptu.
What a concert, the audience enjoyed in the evening at Newcastle City Hall!
