Sponsored Sing

Saturday, October 7th 2017 10am – 4.30pm, Ravenshead Village Hall.

On Saturday 7th October, both our training and senior choirs performed in addition to ‘Cantus Amici’ as part of our annual Sponsored Sing, held at Ravenshead Village Hall. There were some beautiful performances from the girls throughout the day, with solos, duets, trios and ensembles in addition to performances from the choirs themselves. A large, appreciative audience took advantage of the plentiful refreshments provided by friends and family of the choirs. There were a number of stalls and activities and ample opportunity for winning prizes too! The choirs are delighted to have raised over £1700 and we thank everyone for their kind support and generosity!

The evening climaxed with a performance of songs from ‘My Fair Lady’. The choir also performed these in Riga.
