Sad News

Posted on Updated on


It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that our President; Lady Mary Holborow, sadly passed away recently and our thoughts go out to her family.When we initially approached Lady Mary with our proposition for her to be our President, she was pleased to be asked, especially as she appreciated what we did to support Charities, but worried she would not be able to be an overly active President! However, she still managed to be very supportive of Cornwall Symphony Chorus and attended our Concerts whenever she was able to do so; something she took great pleasure from, as well as attending our first Dinner & Dance in 2015 which, she informed me, was viewed as an opportunity to relax in a welcoming environment.

As many others have said, Lady Mary will be remembered for her easy ability to talk to people, her grace and compassion, her tireless work ethos, her wry sense of humour and her winning smile and I am sure I am not alone when I say that she will be greatly missed, as President, advocate and friend, by all of us in Cornwall Symphony Chorus.
