CHRISTMAS CONCERT 2018
Our Christmas concert at the Hanney Memorial Hall was a very enjoyable occasion. We’re confident that it wasn’t just the mince pies that the audience found to be pleasurable! Our concert guests ‘OK Flutes’ performed with us for the first time and provided an interesting contrast to our music programme.
OUR NEXT MAIN CONCERT
The choir’s main fund-raising event of the year, its Annual Concert, takes place on Saturday April 13th, at the Beacon (ex Civic Hall) Portway, Wantage OX12 9BX . Our concert guests will be the Oxford-Welsh Male Voice Choir, making it the first ‘all-male Annual’ since 2007, when we were joined by Swindon MVC. The concert proceeds will be in aid of choir funds and the local charity for Parkinson’s UK. Further details follow in due course.
The Annual Concert proceeds help us to operate whilst keeping our charges at reasonable levels. At the same time we try to help local charities and for the last four years the concert proceeds have enabled us to present £500 in turn to the local charities Wantage & Grove Street Pastors, the Sweatbox Youth Group, based at King Alfred’s School, Wantage, the DAMASCUS Youth Project operating in the Vale of White Horse and South Oxon and, for last year, the Wantage October Club for Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
