CHRISTCHURCH SINGERS - SUMMER MUSIC - 22nd June 2019

The church was crowded with hardly a spare seat in the building as the 35 strong Christchurch Singers presented their ‘Music for a Summer’s Evening’. Barry Turnwell introduced the various items, with Elizabeth Bush on the clavinova and Gerald Witts on the organ. As always the singers were conducted by Mr Pat Reigh. It was also a pleasure to welcome the Deputy Mayor of Bexhill to the evening.

There was a varied selection of musical items varying from  ‘Deep down in my heart’ to ‘Thank you for the music’ written and recorded by ABBA. John Knight presented his own poem entitled ‘You raise me up’ and the choir followed on with the singing of the song with the same title.

Elizabeth Bush gave two special pieces on the clavinova including the lovely Cavatina from The Deer Hunter.

For each concert the members of the choir nominate a local charity to receive the proceeds of the collection. Over the past eleven years over £19,000 has been raised – an excellent total. This June’s concert collection was for HUG (Bexhill and Rother  Homelessness Unity Group when the magnificent sum of £1000 was raised.

Many thanks to all who came along and supported the evening. It really was a most enjoyable event and we all now look forward to the Christmas Concert that will be held in our church on Saturday December 7th at 6pm.

We are an ecumenical choir some 40 strong drawn from churches across Bexhill and St Leonards. We generally tend to sing in four part harmony, and enjoy each other’s company week by week. There is no audition, just an ability to sing in tune and to come regularly. Sight reading is helpful but by no means obligatory!

News from the Christchurch Singers
Our Christmas Praise concert held on December 9th resulted as usual in a totally full church, and we were honoured to have in our audience the Mayor of Bexhill, Cllr. Abul Azad, Cllr. Mrs Deirdre Earl-Williams and Cllr. and Mrs Jimmy Carroll. Barby Keel was in attendance and gave a moving appeal on behalf of her Animal Sanctuary, as a result of which a collection was taken up. Together with later donations from Llewelyn Lodge and The Diabetic Support Group, a grand total of £1000 was raised.


Why not come and sing with us? Chris Cox, the secretary would be pleased to tell you more.  Phone 01424 220524, email chriscox60@hotmail.com Rehearsals are from 7.15pm – 8.30pm every Thursday evening at Christchurch.
