University Chamber Choir sings at local fund-raising activities

The University Chamber Choir recently sang carols at the Royal United Hospital to mark the lighting of the Tree of Hope in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The event was attended by the Mayor of Bath.

Last Saturday, the choir sang at Bowood House, Wiltshire, in aid of the local branch of the charity Headway (which supports people with a brain injury and those who care for them).

Bowood is the family home of Lady Lansdowne, Headway’s local patron.

The Choir presented a programme of music and readings for Advent and Christmas which delighted the audience:

"The many Headway members who were involved in organising the event were thrilled with the way the evening went and were very appreciative of the enormous contribution that the Choir made. There were many praises from the audience for the quality of the singing. The majority of guests had never heard the Choir before and they were most impressed."

The Choir can next be heard at the University Carol Service tonight (Wednesday) at 7.30pm in Bath Abbey (doors open at 7pm).
