We were delighted to welcome so many people to our Christmas concert last Saturday at St. Nicholas Sevenoaks. We had a uplifting evening singing carols from across the ages, from There is No Rose to a beautiful arrangement of My Heart Will Always Wander by the modern Norwegian composer Magnussen in its first UK performance. There were readings inspired by the Christmas story and some fantastic original accompaniments from the brass quintet Mardi Brass. They also played a lovely, measured arrangement of the Symphony from the Messiah and a spirited and witty medley of more modern Christmas songs. With audience carols and the rousing backdrop of the organ played by Riccardo Bonci we hope our audience had as enjoyable evening as we did.
On Tuesday before our concert we sang carols at Sevenoaks Station for the Red Cross Ebola appeal. We thank our friends and family who helped us with the collection as we sang. We raised over £350. We continued our collection after the concert itself and were able to contribute in total to the fund just over £1000 which was a fantastic achievement. Thank you to everyone for your support.
