CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: We're so excited to be back rehearsing together in person in September!

 

Our Autumn and Christmas schedule of concerts will be finalised soon, but include:

St Paul's Withington - Saturday 16 October, 7.00pm

United Reform Church Wilmslow - Saturday 4 December

Christmas Classics at the Bridgewater Hall - Monday 20 December, 7.30pm

Christmas Singalong at the Bridgewater Hall - Friday 24 December, 3.00pm

 

 

Just before the summer break we squeezed in an outdoor rehearsal, and had enormous fun:

During the first lockdown we recorded a 'Virtual Choir' video of Will Todd's "Like a Rainbow Shining", and in our final three rehearsals before Christmas we set ourselves the challenge of singing all 100 in the much loved book, "100 Carols for Choirs" - a mammoth task - with sponsorship and donations going to the Manchester Barnabus Appeal. By the end of the final rehearsal a whopping £849 had been raised! 

Here we are in our Christmas bling, singing the carols:
