The Devon Filipino Community Association choir performed three songs at the Exeter Respect Festival 2021 on Saturday 14th August.
After a lot of rehearsals, not without complications due to COVID-19, the choir pulled off a great show. Arlene Lewis said, ‘It was difficult having not been able to get together, and Zoom rehearsing did not work what with delays and not being able to hear each other properly, but we did it in the end.’
The performance was dedicated to all the NHS and key workers who have supported us all throughout the pandemic. The Filipino community make up a large proportion of our NHS and care sector workforce here in Devon and across the rest of the UK, so it was a touching reminder of all their hard work and generosity.
