2022 unusual, and remarkable- so far


The concert programme is still disjointed and we don't perform again until July so we are using this time to learn new music. We have had three performances so far with excellent results. In March we sang for a small local charity Shine 21 which supports pre-school children with Downs syndrome. A combination of our concert and an appeal on local radio raised a magnificent £8000. We supported the return of the Eskdale Festival in Whitby and won 3 classes and then on Easter Monday performed on behalf of the humanitarian appeal for Ukraine and raised just over £5000. Concerts are planned for July and August with a tour of Germany in September and a return to Gunnerside in Swaledale in September. By then, perhaps, the year will not feel quite so remarkable.
