IDMC Easter Tour 2012
IDMC set out on its first Easter season tour in a long while, with 7 dates over 10 days.
The group which was made up of 8 singers and a 4 piece band travelled to Yeovil, Mine head, Gloucester, London, Skegness, Chatham and back to Mine head, covering over 1500 miles.
Many of these areas were places the choir had never been before, and were areas where gospel choirs were heard of, seen on TV, but never seen in the flesh, so there was a healthy curiosity for what we do.
The concerts were well attended, and received by the audience. Included in these dates were 6 performances at Spring Harvest in front of over 10, 000 people. These concerts were truly off the chain, with queues outside our venues going round the building before the show even started.
Another very memorable evening was at NTCG Gloucester, home to good friend Bishop Fullwood. The sell-out audience of IDMC friends and fans danced the night away and sang HARD, as IDMC came close to taking off the churches roof.
The tour was a fantastic experience for the choir, and has put us in a great position to do it all over again next year but with the addition of a possible 7 more dates on the cards…
