  •  Date Posted: Fri, 24 Jan 2020


    We're absolutely delighted to announce that we raised over £3000 in donations at our concerts last year.
    It's a huge achievement, not just for our choir members but for our audience members who continue to support us at each concert.
    Thank you so much to everybody who has contributed - the charities that we support are in need of our help, and the money raised makes an enormous difference.

    There will be an informal concert in the afternoon which can be attended by family and friends.

  • RING THE BELLS

    This term, we'll be performing a new carol, Ring the Bells (Paul Fincham) in support of homeless charity Crisis (https://www.crisis.org.uk/). The composer is donating his royalties to Crisis so every performance contributes towards the charity's plan to end homelessness. The London Philharmonic Choir, who commissioned the piece, recently announced that there will be 50 performances of the carol this year by 39 different choirs, and we're very pleased to be one of them.

    For more information about the project, visit https://lpc.org.uk/ringthebells/.

    The performance will be part of our concert on 7th December at St Mary's Church, Chipping Norton, 7.30pm.
