The word recent is a relative term … our previous two concerts were late 2019 and early 2020. Nonetheless they were very successful – musically and financially for the charity.
December 2019 – Carols at Ince Blundell
Our annual Christmas Concert in Holy Family raised well over £3,000 for Mary’s Meals
February 2020 – St Peter’s Church, Formby
Mozart’s sublime Requiem and Rutter’s effervescent Feel the Spirit raised another £1k+ for Mary’s Meals
Actually there was another – rather amazing concert. Our first annual Christmas concert not in Ince Blundell, and our first without an audience.
We were fortunate that there was a little window in the government restrictions which seemed to allow us to meet and record a performance. We didn’t really rehearse (!), but sang through pieces and then filmed/recorded them. It was the all pieced together into a concert posted on YouTube
Thanks to contributions via a JustGiving page, and Gift Aid, we were able to raise more than £8,000 for our usual Christmas concert charity: Mary’s Meals.
