What He Started  – Christmas Concert Winter 2012



Celebrating the completion of Renewal’s debut album project 




After a 3 year marathon of planning, recording and finally pressing Renewal’s Debut album, the  winter 2012 concert performance was a showcase of song tracks from the recording shared in the community setting of a cosey school hall in North East Bristol. The event was a little more “intimate” than Renewals typical  end of year concert with a  select audience of around 250 family and friends.

About the Production

The showcase event was MC’d by a relay of choir members including Miriam, Vicky, Robyn and Lorna who shared some touching and humorous aspects of the choirs journey from dreaming about, driving through and finally delivering the end product of our labours – Our debut album What He Started. To add to the atmosphere of celebration the programme was strategically “peppered” with artist contributions of dance from Charnelle, soulful solo singing from Jessica accompanied by Charlie on the acoustic guitar and animated performance poetry from wordsmith Miles
