“This is going to be very exciting for us. To have someone with this experience, along with his absolute enthusiasm for amateur choirs and his superb organisational skills, is going to put our beloved choir on another level.
“We are celebrating our 30th jubilee during 2024 and to have Mr Stamper join us, is the icing on the cake,” Burnard said.
