Roll up, roll up, for the FUNdamentally GOSPEL Winter Concert. It may feel like Christmas is ages away but we know your diaries are already filling up so get this event marked in there now!
Not only are we holding our main event on a Saturday night again to encourage those of you who reside slightly further afield to make the trip to leafy Beckenham to revel in our uplifting mix of pop, soul, gospel and world music, but we're also returning to the very welcoming Beckenham Baptist Church (opposite The Spa/Beckenham Library) - a large venue with lovely acoustics. Please help us fill it so we can retain the warm, spirited atmosphere of our previous performances.
Saturday 14 December, 7.30pm (doors open at 7.00pm)
Beckenham Baptist Church, Elm Road, Beckenham, BR3 4JB
With membership of the choir continuing to grow and a bank of repertoire ranging from Mumford & Sons to Mariah Carey via Hezekiah Walker and MC Hammer, plus a healthy dose of Christmas cheer, it promises to be the best event yet, and we very much hope you will be able to join us for a lively evening of soul-stirring music-making.
Entry is by donation with all profits going to local charity Community Music In Action. Set up by members of the choir in 2011, the charity runs music projects for disadvantaged and vulnerable groups in south London, employing experienced, professional workshop leaders to direct the projects with the support of volunteers from within the choir. Over the last twelve months CMIA has run a music projects varying from one day workshops to setting up choirs, working alongside organisations such as Whizz-Kidz, Young Carers Bromley, Carers Bromley and Glebe School. You will be able to hear more about the work of the charity and how you can get involved at the concert.
