Summer Concert Collaborations 🎶

Last term we had a brilliant time doing not one but two performances, collaborating with three different choirs – and a concert band to boot!

Earlier on in the summer we did a joint concert with Clapham Community Choir – a gig originally planned for April 2020! During the pandemic we made a virtual choir video together, but nothing beats singing together in person, and we were delighted to finally perform together at St Gabriel’s Pimlico in May 2022. The concert was a fundraiser for the Sanctuary Foundation, a charity promoting welcome and welfare for Ukrainian refugees in the UK, and included a joint performance of the beautiful Ukrainian lullaby Oi Khodyt Son Kolo Vikon. The gig raised £912.28 for the Sanctuary Foundation – thanks to everyone who came along!

At the end of our Summer Term we had the pleasure of collaborating with a group of brilliant young people from Altrincham Grammar School for Boys, all the way from Manchester, and the equally lovely Camberwell Community Choir. Performing at St Giles church in Camberwell, the school’s concert band accompanied singers from all three choirs for renditions of A Million Pieces by Bastille and Queen’s Radio Gaga. A great time was had by all!

We’re excited to get started with a new term on 22nd September 2022 so do come along if you want to join in the fun 🙂
