Choir engagements for 2018

1st March 2018

Because of the adverse weather conditions this concert has been postponed and will now take place on the 22nd of March.

The chorus will be taking part in a fundraising evening for a school in Nepal. The school is funded by a charity which is part of an organisation called Q Learning Trust and the fundnig will go towards  buying equipment for the nursery class which currently has nothing for the 5 year olds. The class room is empty apart from some desks which are totally inapropriate. In addition the funding will buy a carpet for story time, small chairs and tables, toys, trikes, posters and learning equipment blocks etc.

The event will take place in the Cullercoats Crescent Club, Victoria Cres, North Shields NE30 4PN, and will commence at 7.30pm so please come along and support this worthy cause.

On the hottest night of the year the road show supported by Enigma performed in concert to raise funds for the improvements to .............the heating system at The Minster!. There was almost a full house who enjoyed the fabulous perfomance given by the ensemble despite the noise from the Fanzone less that 100 yards away who were enjoying the England World Cup game. A great result for all and £616 raised for the heating improvements.

Feedback from the organisers:

A very big thank you to both choirs for the wonderful evening of entertainment they provided at Sunderland Minster last night. without exception everyone I spoke to, thought they were wonderful! The evening raised £616 for our funds and we are extremely grateful for the generosity of all the members in giving of their time and talents to support us.
Kindest regards.
Gillian, Sandra and all at Sunderland Minster.
