A night of midsummer music and song

A concert by The Christchurch Singers on Saturday (June 21st) raised £770 for life-saving charity Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance.

The 35-strong choir performed their Music for a Midsummer’s Eve at Christchurch Methodist Church as part of the Bexhill Festival of Music.

An audience of 200 attended the free two-hour concert which included guest artists Gerald Witts playing the organ and linking with Andy Gill and Mette Fisher on trumpets, and Roland Friday on keyboard.

The choir, which represents eight churches, was once again led by conductor Pat Reigh who was joined by accompanist Mavis Foskett and Master of Ceremonies Barry Tunwell.

A representative from Sussex Air Ambulance also gave a brief presentation about the work of the charity helicopter which relies almost entirely on public donations.

The Christchurch Singers secretary Chris Cox said: “The air ambulance is a worthy cause that has touched some members of the choir.

“We were delighted with how well the concert went and how much the audience and choir thoroughly enjoyed the evening.”
