Other Local Musical Events
From time to time we get asked by other choirs or musical organisations about publicising their events...... these requests will turn up here.
Choral Concert on behalf of Lister Neo-natal unit
Saturday, Jan 26th, 2019 at 7:30pm in St. Mary's Church, Hitchin
At the moment we are still short of an oboist, french horns and a harpist, and it wouldn't be a bad thing if there were a few more tenors and basses...
If you know of anyone who you think might be interested please forward the link below to them, or let me have their contact details and I will approach them.
You may want to have a look at the link regardless, as it has a good summary of the rehearsals for the concert and also a link to the website that sells tickets. These are also available from Hitchin Initiative and David's bookshop.

In the meantime feel free to share the attached poster, and do get in touch if you’d like to help put these up around the area. Link to Poster: here
Fairhaven Singers present: Music for Advent and Christmas
Saturday, December 8th, 2018 at 8:00pm at Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge
Fairhaven Singers, conducted by Ralph Woodward
Our Christmas concert is an annual highlight for choir members and audience alike, featuring seasonal favourites and new discoveries. Traditional pieces by Parsons and Darke, neglected gems by Elgar and Healy Willan, another superb carol by Jonathan Dove (as we look forward to our Dove premiere in March), and Naji Hakim’s thrilling yodel-based Noël are interspersed with carols for all to sing. The combination of these heavenly sounds with a free glass of wine and one of Cambridge’s most beautiful buildings should make our concert on 8 December an unmissable occasion!
